Why Give to ChiTech?

ChiTech operates like a lean start-up – we find innovative ways to minimize our expenses while improving student achievement and opportunity. CPS, state, and federal funding allocates $10,275 per student to the school, but the true cost to educate a ChiTech student is $14,000. It is up to us to cover that gap. The 2016-2017 fundraising need is $450,000. This is a big number, and we rely heavily on our partners to help make-up the difference.

Our donor’s generosity defines us!
