Friends of Payton (FOP) supports the students and faculty of Walter Payton College Prep through volunteerism and fundraising.
Our mission is to enrich the school's educational and extracurricular activities with resources that supplement the limited funding allotted to Payton through the Chicago Public School system. FOP is run by parents/guardians of Payton students as an audit-compliant 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to the school through FOP are tax-exempt.
Every parent and guardian of a current Payton student is automatically a member of Friends of Payton -- there are no membership dues or application processes. We simply ask that every parent/guardian do their best to contribute 10 volunteer hours to the school each year.
Learn how to get involved by attending a Payton Community Meeting or by contacting FriendsofPayton@gmail.com.
