With each concerted effort, including our events, we intend to drive home the important message that higher education can change lives.

Funder Breakfast

We believe education should be accessible to all, and no student should be left behind. Too often, the students who want to pursue post-secondary education don’t have the GPA or academic credentials to qualify for existing financial aid programs. The Funder Breakfast held on November 19, 2021, at Malcolm X College amplified our commitment to raising our first $100 million and identifying priority schools and communities most in need.

Browse our graphic presentation on why this work is critical for our city and Chicago Public School students; complete a survey that will help guide us as we lead the work; explore the Chicagoland map that tells a compelling story about the ruinous impact of education gaps.
