What a school year.

Here at Raise Your Hand, we are inspired by your resilience and your passion for justice. During the past few months, we have interacted with hundreds of parents (many new to RYH) - thank you for practicing hope, standing for racial justice, and fighting to protect public education for our children. 

The equity gaps in this city and state have been exacerbated and we feel the urgency to continue growing to meet those needs. We are reaching out to you today to share our online fundraising campaign, Grow With Us, and asking you to donate if you are able. Our goal is to raise over $10,000 by the end of next week, June 26th. Your impact could be tripled - we have also confirmed an individual donor who will match the $10,000 goal and are also only $14,000 away from a challenge grant. Your gift during this campaign allows us to continue to INFORM, ENGAGE, be ACCESSIBLE for, ADVOCATE with, and EMPOWER our parents, fighting to ensure we all have a voice at the table.

More than half of our annual funding comes from supporters like you. Because of your generosity over the past 10 years (can you believe we are 10!?!), we expanded and hired our “new” executive director and our first part-time LSC parent organizer. We tripled the number of LSC programs held in a typical year, formed a school funding coalition, and continued to hold Special Education Know Your Rights workshops across the city. This year, Crossroads Fund recognized us with the Ron Sable Award for Activism. During the pandemic, we held over 20 LSC or Sp.Ed parent meetings with more than 800 total attendees and almost doubled the number of communications in order to provide parents with responsive and reliable information. 

If you are able, please consider a new gift or a recurring donation. Any amount helps us reach our goal. Donations to RYH are tax-deductible. Click here to make your gift online or send a check to Raise Your Hand, 1444 W Elmdale Ave #3, Chicago, IL 60660. Thank you for supporting RYH over the past 10 years - here’s to the next 10!
