After School Matters aims to provide 23,000 unique after-school and
summer program opportunities for Chicago high school teens this year.
Funds raised through our Annual Gala will give these teens a life-changing
experience and a path to a bright future.

An investment in our youth is an investment in our collective future.

Last year's Gala proved to be one of our most successful EVER. Close to 1,000 guests spent an incredible evening on September 21st at Chicago's historic Navy Pier talking with teens, shopping for teen-created artwork, experiencing teen performances, and raising a whole lot of awareness and excitement for the young people of Chicago. In the end, we raised $4.5 million including an incredibly generous donation of $1 million from Derrick Rose. Thank you to all who attended and supported us, whether in person or in spirit!
