We Are Grateful for Your Support
We have accomplished much with limited resources in the past 16 years, however, we need your help as we set off for this year's ambitious goals!
Who We Are
A registered 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization, Chicago Persian School has been an inclusive community hub for learning since 2007. We offer in-person and online Persian language and art classes to interested children and adults, regardless of their race, religion, nationality, or ethnic background. Check out the testimonials from our graduates!
What We Do
Our mission is to preserve and promote the Persian language and culture by providing quality educational opportunities, creating relevant educational content, and forging community partnerships. Our intergenerational model of community development engages students, alumni, and parents in a holistic social and educational experience. Take a look for yourself!
How We Do It
We rely on your philanthropic support to bridge the gap between the actual costs of running the school and the revenue generated from tuition. Given the wealth of experience and insights gained over the past 15 years, we are ready to move to the next level and we are asking for your help.
Why Donate Now
Because we need to:
Create and publish Persian language educational materials, suitable for today’s second-language learners. We have published our first textbook and more are coming.
Expand community engagement events and youth programming.
Modernize the School's operation to ensure sustainability.
Get Recognized for Your Kind Support
While we appreciate any amount of donation, financial contributions greater than $500 will be publicly recognized during the Chicago Persian School Nowruz event, with your permission (see details for sponsorship levels).
