Legacy: the ability to make a lasting difference in an individuals’ life by offering them the financial assistance to obtain a college degree.
The Sid Feldman Legacy Fund is a volunteer-driven scholarship fund that began in January 2010. The scholarship funds partial tuition to DePaul University to two students from the Chicago Public School district each year for four years of undergraduate education.
As of July 2016, over $585,000 has been raised from donations secured by teams of volunteers charged with supporting the fund. These volunteers raise funds from family members, friends, coworkers and others, as well as through fundraising events with local businesses and restaurants.
By giving to Sid Feldman, you help enrich the educational opportunities of our students and ensure they are able to fulfill their dreams. Your contribution will have a lasting effect on the lives of students for generations to come.
Thank you to the volunteers, donors and supporters who help underprivileged youth from Chicago achieve their educational goals at DePaul University.

Congratulations to the students and volunteers who surpassed their goal for 2015-2016 and raised over $101,000! These donations, combined with the previous student efforts, allowed two additional scholarships to be disbursed in Fall 2015 to deserving Chicago Public School students.
