Major Donors 2012 PDF Print E-mail

Thank you to all of our contributors!

Every year teachers and students thank us for the opportunities and support that CMHEC provides for them in the study of history. None of these opportunities would exist, however, without the generous people, corporations, and foundations that have provided financial and in-kind support for History Fair and other CMHEC activities. Without them—as well as the many people who donate smaller amounts every year—we would not be able to offer the programs and support that we do for Chicago’s teachers and students. We deeply appreciate all of their many contributions!
