Thanks to the generosity of so many people, we raised more than $37,000 for GivingTuesday!
Thanks to you, FoWY will continue our tradition of giving back to our Dolphin Community through our Annual Fund programs.
Thanks to you, FoWY will fund dozens of programs and activities that support Whitney Young students as they prepare for college — and beyond.
We are truly grateful to our generous community.

Welcome to the Friends of Whitney Young (FoWY) community! We are a dedicated group of parents, students, alumni, faculty, and staff working for the betterment of Whitney Young High School.
We are officially in Back to School mode, which means we’ll be hosting monthly get-togethers and social events for Whitney Young parents and guardians. We’re thrilled to bring some of these events throughout the Chicago area and support our school through various events and campaigns.
“Giving back. Paying forward!” is our slogan, and we hope you will join us as we work together for the benefit of all of our children.
Look for information from FoWY in the Whitney Young Weekly, which is sent each Sunday night to your email. If you are not receiving the Weekly, please sign up here.
