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 support, resources, and professional learning opportunities that enhance teacher quality and stimulate professional growth. We currently offer five grant-based programs and an annual teacher Workshop. 


As we celebrate more than 33 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.
