Three million hearts, awake and dreaming.


Donate Now

With your tax deductible donation, we can continue to offer resources and programs free of charge, and keep saying YES to the schools, students, and dreamers who ask for our help.

We can’t do this without you…and wouldn’t want to!  

Dream Chicago is generously supported by donors, dreamers and doers in the form of monetary gifts, memberships, and in-kind donations such as art supplies, educational resources, instruments, studio spaces and more.  Our work would not be possible without the priceless gift of time provided by our devoted volunteers–our Board of Directors, studio and/or teaching artists, school educators and administrators, professionals, parents, and students.    

We are extremely grateful for every investor and investment in our mission!  

On behalf of the dreamers whose futures are brighter because of you, thank you in advance for your investment in hope, community, and the power of creativity to transform lives. 

You help make dreams come true.
