Mission & Vision

Jim Tyree believed in the power of knowledge. He never stopped learning and exploring innovative ways to improve educational efforts in schools, health care, business and life. Jim believed that you could always do more. The James Tyree Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in his memory.

Our mission is to advance innovative educational efforts in
academics, health care and other disciplines.

To accomplish our mission, we dedicate funds to innovative organizations and programs in the Chicago area by:

  • Partnering with innovative leaders to advance programs that redefine traditional educational efforts.
  • Supporting innovative educational approaches that advance cognitive, physical and emotional health.
  • Providing a foundation for educators to build progressive programs that improve participants’ lives today and in the future.
