Each year the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) Annual Fund helps provide students with financial aid, facility enhancements, technology acquisitions and upgrades, academic programming, and many other initiatives crucial to their education. By giving to the SAIC Annual Fund, you are investing in the school’s areas of greatest need.

Whether you are an alum, parent, current student, or supporter of art and design education, your gift benefits all SAIC students on their personal, artistic, and academic journeys. We count on your annual support to meet needs not fully provided for through tuition and other routine sources of income.
