78% of Americans believe that teachers are underpaid.


Each year, many teachers have to use their personal finances for the decoration of their classrooms. According to a poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Chicago, 78% of Americans believe that teachers are underpaid; our team at ChiGivesBack, Inc. believes that too. These realizations led us to develop Teach2Give. Teach2Give is a program that is designed to solicit classroom supplies and provide Chicagoland teachers with the resources that they need in order to prepare their classrooms. In August 2018, this program recognized 50 Chicago Public School teachers, providing them with classroom supplies and financial stipends to meet their goals for the year.

This program will also periodically recognize CPS teachers through our Teach2Give Teacher Honor Roll — please nominate a teacher today at the link below.
