DRW is proud to support many philanthropic organizations in the metropolitan areas where we live and work, targeting our efforts at providing people with opportunities to learn and increase self-reliance. Being involved matters to us, and we encourage all of our team members to volunteer their time and expertise.
For over a decade, our foundation has supported numerous organizations in the areas of education, training and housing. We seek to support organizations that have demonstrable positive results, benefit the communities around us, and focus on their mission with limited overhead.
With support from our foundation, DRW College Prep opened in 2012 as the 12th campus of the Noble Network of Charter Schools. Its mission is to challenge and support students to become educated people of integrity who positively impact their communities. DRW College Prep engages students in rigorous academics, with a view toward attending and succeeding in college. The Noble Network operates on 16 campuses across Chicago, bringing quality education to more than 12,000 students each year.
