Your Gift Makes a Difference
If you believe that artists and designers are indispensable, global citizens with the power to shape our shared society for the better, then support the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in providing students with a transformative art and design college experience and the community with vital educational programming.
The Fund for SAIC
The Fund for SAIC impacts the largest number of artists and designers by raising money to support our current students.
Gifts to the Fund for SAIC provide grants and financial aid to deserving students who might not otherwise be able to attend. They allow us to improve equipment and technology at the school that students use to expand their practices and best express themselves. By giving to the Fund you are investing in the academics, student life, and free programming for all Chicagoans that together make the SAIC experience whole.
Student Emergency Relief Campaign by SAIC
As the COVID-19 pandemic drastically impacts our world, countries, and communities, we at SAIC know that many of our students are facing immediate hardships. Numerous student artists, designers, and scholars are suddenly faced with financial constraints, travel restrictions, food scarcity, loss of income, and uncertainty about their access to distance learning technology.
In response to the rapid effects of the global pandemic on our community, the Student Emergency Relief Campaign by SAIC will provide financial assistance and access to essential resources for SAIC students facing the fallout of this crisis.
