The Chicago Foundation for Education appreciates the generous support of our individuals, corporations, foundations, and in-kind partners. In a typical year, a full 85% of all contributions go directly towards program expenses.  The following list represents FY13 (July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013), and is updated annually.  The scrolling list to the right will next be updated in February.
