The Chicago School's social entrepreneurial approach to tackling pressing community problems leverages the significant intellectual and human capital of its students and faculty to bring enduring and measurable change.
The School's Institutional Advancement Office develops mutually beneficial partnerships with foundations and corporations to expand our capacity and resources to help bring about this valuable change.
Our corporate and foundation partners have supported several groundbreaking initiatives and worked with TCS faculty, staff, and students to address concerns such as promoting mental health in the Latino community, reuniting families of returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, and building a Forensic Center to help those involved with the legal system (such as victims of sexual / domestic abuse, trauma survivors, substance abusers, the chronically mentally ill, and others).
The financial needs of an institution like The Chicago School, which contributes nearly 800,000 hours of pro bono and low-cost services to community partners, are complex and surpass the funding of scholarships alone. In order to provide its students with the best possible education and training opportunities and to measurably improve the mental health of communities at home and abroad, The Chicago School reaches out to foundations and corporations for collaboration and support.
To further this effort, Institutional Advancement Office staff members identify opportunities—programs, research activities, capital projects, scholarship needs, and international exchange efforts—that match foundation and corporate giving priorities. Our staff is committed to cultivating very positive and constructive relationships with corporate and foundation staff, submitting thoughtful proposals, executing careful stewardship of gifts, and enthusiastically recognizing all gifts we receive.
