Opportunities for support

With Chicago Public Schools going online this fall, we are extremely concerned about our lower income families and want them to have access to the academic support, enrichment, and recreation that they need and deserve. Your sponsorship today helps provide fairness in education for the students and families we serve.


All sponsorship levels come with recognition in event materials and during the virtual event.
