In 2018, Math Circles of Chicago raised $21,555. With 200 more students this year, their work in four homeless shelters, and piloted partnerships with other after school programs to expand their impact further, the goal for Giving Tuesday 2019 is $33,013.
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 the QED Math Symposium. With an operating budget of $311,778 this equates to $277.14 per quarter per child.
Your contribution will support 750 fifth through twelfth graders at eight sites across Chicago engaging in exploratory math curriculum that is cooperative, fun, and accessible to all.
Thank you for being a part of this global day of philanthropy and supporting our efforts!
Today is the day. Each year Giving Tuesday is Math Circles of Chicago's largest single fundraising event. Please join me in supporting this amazing non-profit and help me reach my fundraising goal.
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.
