Friends of Skinner North
Friends of Skinner North (FoSN), a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, is Skinner North's parent organization. We are a parent action team with a mission: to build an active community of parents who support Skinner North students, teachers, and staff throughout the year.
"We Work to Fuel the Academic, Social, and Financial Growth of our School."
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. Bridge the Gap has a fundraising goal of $50,000 for 2020-2021.
