Join our family and friends to collectively support 826CHI Forward, the building campaign that will get 826CHI up and running in their new home at 1276 N Milwaukee Ave.

Join Kapil and Kendra in support 826CHI Forward to help 826CHI get up and running in their new home in time for fall programming. We are kicking off this friends and family fund with a $500 donation, and hope you will help us reach – or exceed – our goal of $10k in the next 30 days. 

More about 826CHI Forward:

Every day at 826CHI, we ask students to write stories. As we reflect on our first nine years, we can tell a story of our own, one that features a lively cast of original characters, and is set against the backdrop of changing neighborhoods. It’s a story of Chicago. This narrative unfolds through inspiring relationships between student authors and compassionate volunteers as they imagine and write about extraordinary new worlds.

As we look ahead to our ten-year anniversary, we recognize that our potential for growth unequivocally hinges on a strong base of support and a dynamic setting that inspires the creative process. The 826CHI Forward capital fund will fulfill these needs while strengthening our core, empowering our community, and advancing us into the next chapter of our story.

Each phase focuses on a necessary aspect of our growth, beginning with relocation to a larger, more affordable space; followed by an enhancement of tools, materials, and technology; and culminating with an ongoing fortification of resources. Of course, we can’t do this alone. Just as our students’ stories inspire us, we hope that our story inspires you to support 826CHI Forward.
