It is with great sadness that we share the news of Shirley Jaffee’s passing on Monday, July 18, 2016. She was an integral part of CFE where she served as a board member for 26 years. Shirley’s commitment to the Chicago education community will be treasured and remembered always. She will be missed greatly, but her legacy lives on through CFE's work with Chicago's teachers and students each day. Thank you to those who have honored her memory with a gift to CFE. If you would like to honor Shirley in this way as well, you can make a memorial gift here.
CFE is excited to launch it's first sustaining gifts program, Gold Star Supporters. 100% of Gold Star Supporters' gifts will go towards supporting the professional journeys of CPS teachers, providing them with the resources and tools to impact the academic success of their students. Join our monthly giving program today!
