Sponsors & Donors

The work we do in Chicago public schools helps keep students in school and on track to graduate. It has a data-driven impact. We leverage community resources efficiently and focus on proven programs.

For less than $50 per student, we are able to achieve important results in improving social-emotional health, physical health, arts enrichment, and college and career readiness. All of this comes together to keep students in school and on track to graduate prepared for success.

This combination of efficiency and effectiveness appeals to our sponsors and donors. They view their donations as investments – in our work, in the students of Chicago, and in the city of Chicago.

Our current partners encompass leading foundations, civic-minded corporations, and caring individuals. Their generous support allows us to serve the students of Chicago, which serves the greater good as well.

Donor Profile: Jackson national

CIS of Chicago is thrilled to continue our partnership with Jackson through the 2021-22 school year. Their continued support of our Intensive Program allows us to provide case management to hundreds of students, helping them stay in school and on track to graduate high school prepared for success. We couldn’t do it without Jackson’s dedication to our students and our mission.

Donor Highlight: the Reva and david logan foundation

CIS of Chicago could not do the important work we do without the partnership of our donors. It is our honor to feature the Reva & David Logan Foundation, who have recently made a multi-year commitment to support our Intensive Program. In our work in the Intensive Program, we embed a CIS staff member at an under-resourced Chicago public school. That staff member, a Student Supports Manager, provides whole-school supports in six key focus areas, and works more intensively with a group of approximately 45 young people who have been identified as high risk of going off track or dropping out – providing counseling, mentoring, social-emotional learning supports, and more.

The Logan Foundation is a Chicago-based family foundation that provides strategic grants to support social justice, the arts and investigative journalism both in Chicago and around the world. Dedicated to lasting support for the founders’ powerful and eclectic mix of grants, the Foundation’s directors each contribute their own unique interests.

The Logan Foundation is a critical partner in our work, and we are grateful to their team for their investment in our mission and our youth.
