  • Mission:
  • Chicago Foundation for Education supports Chicago Public Schools teachers with leadership, learning, and grant opportunities that translate into enhanced classroom experiences.

  • Overview:
  • The Chicago Foundation for Education (CFE) supports Chicago Public School (CPS) teachers with professional growth and development opportunities that translate into enhanced classroom experiences. With a staff of five and a corps of more than 250 dedicated volunteers, CFE provides financial incentives, facilitates collaborative networks, and offers leadership opportunities to foster teacher quality throughout every stage of an educator’s career.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1985, CFE has invested almost $8 million in more than 30,000 Chicago Public School classrooms, directly impacting more than 1.1 million Chicago Public School students. During the last academic year alone, CFE impacted 1,142 teachers and directly benefitted 56,745 students.

    CFE initiatives include five grant-based programs for teachers (Small Grants, Study Group Coach and Team Member Grants, Fund for Teachers, and Action Research Leadership Institute) and an annual “Teachers as Leaders and Learners” Workshop. These efforts address the specific needs of today’s educators, providing the support they need to realize heightened instructional effectiveness. CFE also promotes the curricular integration of Character Education to meet the social-emotional learning needs of students.
