CME Group Foundation was created in 2008 and endowed with a gift of $16 million from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Trust (CME Trust). Additionally, CME Trust makes annual contributions to CME Group Foundation to support its grantmaking.

CME Group Foundation serves as an advocate for computer science and math education and the use of technology to personalize learning in Chicago and throughout Illinois.

We support transformative solutions that promote real, measurable impact by:

  • Increasing exposure to skills essential for future academic success
  • Nurturing new programs, and research and development
  • Empowering partners to bring innovative programming to our area - often as the first corporate investor

Beyond funding, we facilitate collaboration by encouraging our partners to find creative ways to support tomorrow’s classroom.
