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 $15,000. It is up to us to cover that gap. The 2019-20 fundraising need is nearly $500,000.

This is a big number, and we rely heavily on our partners to help meet the difference.

Support the ChiTech COVID-19 Relief Fund

In light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our students and families, Chicago Tech Academy has created a temporary relief fund to meet these needs for our student and alumni communities. We aim to reach those most in need in these extraordinary times and provide them with additional funds to cover necessary costs, such as food, toiletries, clothes, shelter, communication, etc.
