WE ARE FRIENDS OF BURLEY We plan fundraisers. We run the Annual Fund. We ask the neighborhood for support. We help organize Signup events. We are an all volunteer group of parents with serious expertise in having fun and serious heart for the work that goes on within these four walls every day. We work together with the Burley School administration to set fundraising goals that ensure Burley School has what it needs to stay amazing.
Donations to Friends of Burley fund the esteemed Merit Music program that gives music to every child at Burley. They fund staff positions (not supported by CPS) without which Burley School simply would not be the place it is today. And they maintain the 1:1 technology program so integral to Burley’s unique state-of-the-art curriculum. We are Friends of Burley and together, with your help, we Raise Up the funds that Raise Up Burley School.

WHY WE FUNDRAISE The CPS budget only covers a portion of Burley School's annual expenses. Funds raised by Friends of Burley, then allocated by the Burley administration, ensure Burley continues to have what it needs to support the outstanding curriculum and talented staff that ultimately provides our children with the highest quality education possible.
