Friends of Goethe School (FOGS) is a Logan Square and West Bucktown group of parents, friends, and neighbors working together to make Goethe Elementary a better school for everyone in Chicago.
Friends of Goethe School is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that sponsors several fund-raising events a year and an annual pledge drive to supplement the public dollars Goethe receives. Our goal is to raise enough money to keep class size low and add enrichment programs to the school. Since 2010, FOGS has raised over $18,000 towards the teacher reserve fund to keep class sizes small, provide music instruments for the whole school, improve the Goethe gardens, and for design costs of the playground re-development. In 2012-2013 FOGS raised almost $10,000 which it used to sponsor the Fall Festival, contribute to the Goethe Holiday Bazaar, sponsor pizza parties for Goethe students and cover design costs for the playground development.
