Will you partner with us to change lives in the Austin neighborhood for generations?

Over the next four fiscal years, 2017 – 2020, Chicago Education Partnership’s Moving Everest Charter School will need to raise an approximate average of $400,000 per year to meet its budget.

For fiscal year 2020 and beyond, we hope to be self-sustaining.

This does not account for any additional expenditures in areas like staffing or technology that might arise during the next four years.

It does not account for the funds needed to replicate this model in another Chicago neighborhood.

Your donation will help support school growth (we are adding one grade every year), general operations, curriculum, technology (computers and software licenses), field trips and staff development.

Multiple ways to donate

Check

One of the most common ways to give is by check. Contributions by check are automatically credited to your giving record, and a statement is sent to your address. Please make checks payable to:

Chicago Education Partnership
P.O. Box 924
Wheaton, IL 60187

Online Payment

More and more individuals are choosing the electronic method of making contributions on-line just like they are paying more of their bills on-line. With the security of your information of highest importance, you can rely upon our on-line giving site to set up a one-time, or recurring gift of whatever amount you choose, and however often you choose. The real advantage is that you may easily change your instructions at any time, whether it is dollar amount, timing or frequency of the designation. You are in complete control of the amount and timing of your donations. Just  click the on-line giving link on this page.

Please fill out the form below.

ACH

Giving through the automated clearing house means setting up a recurring gift at your bank. Your bank transfers a pre-arranged set amount of money at a pre-arranged time each month and sends it electronically or by paper check to MECS.

Stock or Mutual Fund Transfer

There are a number of reasons to donate securities (stocks or mutual funds) which have grown in value since the time you acquired them. You should consult your tax adviser for advice. You may donate them directly to MECS by transferring them from your broker to the schools’s broker, which may give you tax advantage because the school is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
