Every year, Chicago teachers spend over $9 million on materials for their students.

The Teachers Resource Project gives Chicago teachers school materials for FREE.


We fund art, STEM, and creative learning for Chicago students using public donations.

Help us reach our 2019 goal to sponsor 100 teachers and provide materials for 20,000 Chicago students!
