Three education nonprofits received $55 million from the biopharmaceutical company AbbVie to bolster their work in underserved neighborhoods in Chicago and other cities across the country.
Officials from the North Chicago-based AbbVie announced the donations Friday morning at Gage Park High School on the Southwest Side.
AbbVie singled out organizations working to improve graduation rates, reduce dropout rates, and increase college and career readiness for students in high-poverty neighborhoods.
