Invest in Chicago Students

Support Perspectives

For more than 25 years, Perspectives has worked hard to provide our students with a challenging curriculum, additional resources, and relevant experiences that will equip them with the tools they need to be successful in a changing, competitive, and diverse society. Our nearly 1,800 students come from Chicago’s most economically challenged communities with limited access to opportunity.

You can make a difference in the lives of our students by making a gift today. Your gift, no matter the amount, is meaningful and deeply appreciated!
