Teacher quality is a fundamental factor in providing the rich educational experience that all Chicago students deserve. Chicago Foundation for Education (CFE) honors exemplary Chicago Public School (CPS) teachers with leadership, learning, and grant opportunities that enhance teacher quality and stimulate professional growth. We currently offer five grant-based programs and an annual Teachers as Leaders and Learners Workshop. During the past year alone (2012-13), we funded 683 grants and worked with 1,037 teachers across 319 schools.


As we celebrate more than 25 years of CFE’s support to CPS teachers, we recognize and thank those who have contributed to our success. We are extremely appreciative of the dedicated volunteers and the individual, foundation, and corporate donors who make all of our accomplishments possible. Support our efforts as a donor or a volunteer, or apply for a grant today!
