Friends of Thorp 23/24 Online Donations

Ole A. Thorp Scholastic Academy (Thorp), a K-8 CPS magnet school located on Chicago’s Northwest side, takes academic excellence seriously and strives every day to be one of the premier schools in Chicago.

However, the gap between the Chicago Public School’s budget and our school’s needs grows each year. Friends of Thorp was formed as a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by Thorp's parents to fundraise to bridge that gap in funding.

Thanks to the support of community partners and families like yours, many wonderful upgrades to the Thorp campus have happened over the past 10 years. These include a new turf field, walking path, and gaga ball pit completed in October 2022, on top of the playground structure, auditorium modernizations, and an improved school kitchen so our kids can have freshly-prepared meals, as well as other smaller improvements to the school experience! Thank you for your continued support!
