Friends of Blaine works with parents, educators, local businesses, Chicago-based corporations and grant-giving foundations to solicit charitable donation in the form of financial assistance, products and services. Donations ensure that Blaine continues to grow as one of the premiere elementary schools in the Chicago Public School system.Friends of Blaine hosts two marquee events each year, our Blue Jay Walk-A-Thon in the Fall and Blaine Gala in the Spring. Monies raised through these events fund programs that benefit Blaine student body. Past endeavors include a complete upgrade of our technology capabilities, school arts programs, foreign language programs and after school athletics.
A philanthropic investment in Blaine Elementary School helps support the educational, artistic and strategic programming for over 900 students.
