Springboard to Success Monthly Giving Program
S2S Sustainers: The Bursar Buddies

Becoming a monthly donor is a generous, simple way to ensure the youngest Chicago Housing Authority residents will have the on-going support needed to get to and through college, into a career, and on to financial independence.

All you have to do is decide how much you want to give each month. We’ll do the rest to ensure CHA youth across Chicago have the community, exposure, and opportunity for lifelong success.

Springboard to Success supports programs and partners that propel CHA residents on their pathways to academic success, economic stability, and independence.  Being part of the S2S Sustainers means you help fund and enhance programs that support CHA youth and the development of 21st Century Learning Skills needed to achieve success in college, career and life and help fund our college scholarship program.

The S2S Sustainers share our ultimate vision that youth currently living in CHA households achieve housing stability as an adult without the requirement of a housing subsidy.


Why join the S2S Sustainers and give monthly?


Choose an amount that fits easily into your monthly budget. It will automatically be deducted from your credit or debit card and get to us safely and on time—saving you the hassle of writing multiple checks.



A monthly donation is a green donation: it means less paperwork and postage, reducing our expenses and increasing our efficiency. That means more of your gift goes to CHA youth!



Because we hope you’re with S2S for the long haul, we don’t set an end-date for your monthly giving. You’re in complete control! If you need to make changes, just contact Amanda DeWitt.



By participating in the Monthly Giving Program, you’ll help S2S build a strong and reliable base of ongoing support. Predictable donations help us to plan long-term and offer more youth our programs and scholarships.


As a Monthly Donor, you’ll receive:

  • Regular newsletter with updates and inspiration from the students we serve at S2S.

  • Exclusive end-of-year newsletter featuring an interview with a current student.

  • A year-end statement that documents your generosity and how your gifts have helped.

  • Your own monthly giving representative to answer questions about the program.
