Campaign: DRW

In the November 2015 issue of MarketWatch, FIA features DRW College Prep, giving a glimpse inside the school and sharing its success despite the challenges faced by its students:

"In a Chicago neighborhood where the number of violent crime reports ranks 9th among Chicago’s 77 communities, DRW College Prep is making a difference in the lives of hundreds of high school students.

DRW College Prep sits just six miles away from its benefactor, Chicago-based principal trading firm DRW. Through the school, DRW and its founder and CEO, Don Wilson, are helping bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity. DRW funded a significant portion of the startup costs to launch DRW College Prep and continues to partner with the school—providing both financial and human resources.

Wilson is passionate about education. “When I think about how to allocate philanthropy and volunteer time, I am most interested in projects that have a long-term impact on improving the community in which we live,” he says. “Nothing comes closer to accomplishing that than education.”
