Thank you for joining us in our mission to build Ryan Banks Academy! We are very thankful for your generosity and appreciate any donation you are able to make at this time, no matter how large or small.

We are on a mission to build Chicago’s first urban boarding school for 7-12th grade students.

RBA’s team of experts have spent over three years researching successful educational strategies, visiting schools around the country, and molding RBA’s vision, mission, and curriculum. Now, the academy is officially ready to open Fall 2018 but we need your help!

RBA recognizes the village that it will take to raise our children and we will be celebrating all contributions to RBA through the rewards listed on our GoFundMe page. We hope to raise $100,000 through our GoFundMe which will help support current operational expenses that will allow for us to open this fall.

Will you take a step for Ryan? Every dollar makes a difference! To help me get the word out, you can share this link to your Facebook Timeline, Twitter or Instagram account, or by emailing to your friends, family, and colleagues! RBA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit and thus all donations to this campaign are tax deductible.

Check out our GoFundMe page to hear from actor/comedian Jeff Garlin (also an RBA board member) about why you should consider making a contribution today!
