How to get involved and donate?

Our walkathon will be held on Friday, October 6, 2023 at Stanton Park. Participating in the walkathon is easy and rewarding! Simply register your child, gather pledges and donations from family members and friends to support the cause. 100% of the donations will go directly to Skinner North and will make a difference to our school!  We also need parent volunteers to help run the event.  Sign up here to volunteer!

FoSN Fundraising


The gap between the Chicago Public Schools budget and the school’s needs grows each year. FoSN helps bridge this gap by purchasing supplies, equipment, software, curriculum, facilities improvements and other items that our students and teachers need every day. Funds raised are used to cover school expenses not covered by the CPS budget. 

Bridge the Gap is an annual drive that allows families to make a tax-deductible donation to FoSN, which enables the administration to plan for the next academic year and meet our school's growing needs. The legacy of parent and community support through FoSN is key to Skinner North's success, providing the funds we need for learning, laughter, and making memories.
