We are excited to support CAPE’s education initiatives nationally and within Chicago Public Schools via BAMM!’s Travel Affinity Program.

BAMM!, the next-generation travel and meeting management platform, today announced with Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE), an unique public-private partnership to drive giving for CAPE’s programs reaching 3,500+ Chicago public school students each year. Using BAMM!’s unique web (, iOS and Android based platform, CAPE supporters travel for fun or business and a percentage of the proceeds go to fund CAPE.

“Today’s political and economic climate is a call to action for the private sector to increase its role in charitable giving. We are tremendously excited to support CAPE’s education initiatives nationally and within Chicago Public Schools via BAMM!’s Travel Affinity Program. The affinity program is easy to set up, and provides donors an alternate way of giving and supporting CAPE,” said Kurt Johnson, CEO, BAMM!

“CAPE is grateful to BAMM! for its long-term commitment to helping Chicago’s students have a robust education through the arts. This partnership is a win-win for our students, as well as for our donors, advocates, teacher, artists and friends who will be able to raise money for CAPE while travelling,” said Amy Rasmussen, Executive Director of CAPE. She went on to say, “In addition to our annual contributions, we are sending students to the 2017 Allied Media Conference in Detroit, and are looking forward to this program helping us support the students, which is, for some, their first out of state trip!”

BAMM! helps non-profits grow their contributions through affinity programs, enterprises receive the best market pricing for travel, and busy individuals have the most productive meetings and travel possible.

About Chicago Arts Partnership in Education (CAPE)

CAPE engages students, inspires teachers, and demonstrates impact by weaving visual, digital, and performing arts into classrooms across Chicago. CAPE’s unique approach to engaging students, inspiring teachers, and demonstrating impact relies on three strategies: Partnerships, Arts Integration, and Research. (a) Partnerships- To bring traditional subjects to life through the arts, we pair professional teaching artists with Chicago Public Schools teachers for long-term classroom partnerships and training. (b) Arts Integration- To spark students’ passion for learning, we weave visual and digital art, music, theater, and dance into traditional subjects like science, math, history, and language arts. (c) Research- CAPE works with external researchers to determine the impact of our programs on students, teachers, and artists. This helps us refine our own work and that of our teaching teams and contribute new knowledge to the field.
