STEM Program

Dear Family and Friends,

The students are CICS Loomis Longwood will be embarking on a new educational journey this year.  We at CICS Loomis Longwood is a proud school community of resilient African-American students in the inner city of Chicago.  Our school’s vision is changing lives through empowerment and academic success. Our students deserve to be able to compete in this ever-expanding global society.  This year we would like to provide opportunities for intellectual curiosity to explore Science, Technology, Engineer, and Math. I take this time to request for donations for our school’s STEM project. We appreciate your support so far in funding our previous projects.

This year we anticipate building the STEM program for 30 weeks at the cost of $10,000 to accommodate the increasing need of exploration, artificial intelligence, and coding for our youth in the inner city of Chicago.  Due to the pandemic, this “new normal” educational platform, and our limited budget, we are unable to fund this program.  We, therefore for support from willing donors to assist us to realize the goal.

You can opt to support us in cash or credit. Any amount is welcomed. Simply click on the link to donate,

As a school we appreciate your efforts as you plan to support us.  If you could also share our fundraiser link with your friends and family, it would mean so much to our Longwood students.  The more people hear about our work in education, the quicker Longwood can reach our fundraising goal.

Your Partner in Education,
