Sixth Annual Inspiration Gala


Supplies for Dreams works every day to equip minds, spark curiosity, and unlock potential to make a long-term difference in Chicago Public Schools students’ lives. The smallest act of generosity and kindness can unlock a child’s future, and your support makes a crucial difference.

This year, SFD is preparing to expand our efforts by establishing a second chapter. Your presence at our Annual Inspiration Gala will help us work towards our goal of unlocking potential in even more CPS students.

Join us for a night of entertainment, food, and philanthropy at Unlock: The Key to Success, our Sixth Annual Inspiration Gala, as we celebrate our students’ achievements. The event will be held at the Chicago Cultural Center, a stunning and historical Chicago landmark featuring a beautiful stained-glass dome. We look forward to seeing you on April 23rd!
