Your gift on Giving Tuesday will help support the 1,125 children served by Math Circles of Chicago this fiscal year.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year, on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Join this global celebration in a new tradition of generosity.

Today is the day. Each year Giving Tuesday is MC2's largest single fundraising event.
For the 2019-20 school year, Math Circles of Chicago will serve 750 children in our academic year sessions, 225 children in our summer camps, and 150 students who will participate in QED. With an operating budget of $311,778 this equates to $277.14 per quarter per child.
In 2018, Math Circles of Chicago raised $21,555. With 200 more students this year, our work in four homeless shelters, and piloted partnerships with other after school programs to expand our impact further, our goal for 2019 is $33,013.
Thank you for being a part of this global day of philanthropy by supporting one of our fundraisers!
Math Circles of Chicago is unique in its approach to helping children develop a passion for mathematics. MC2 provides free, unique math enrichment programs outside of regular school hours and across Chicago for 5th - 12th grade students of diverse backgrounds with the goal of equipping children to excel in STEM fields in college and beyond.
The learning in math circles goes far beyond studying to Common Core standards or prepping for ACT or advanced placement exams, which can be tedious, rote and overwhelming. MC2 gives children a different experience, one where they see mathematics as empowering. By participating in math circles, children’s self-identity shifts so that they see themselves as doers of math, ‘enjoyers’ of math.
Math Circles of Chicago’s curriculum is exploratory and engaging via lesson plans that are cooperative, fun, and accessible to all. Children learn that math is challenging yet exciting, an opportunity rather than an obligation, and something to be considered intrinsically worthy for future study.
