Join Us for This Season of Giving

The Carole Robertson Center for Learning relies on our closest partners to support our annual Holiday Gift Giving Campaign. Through your generosity, we ensure every child and youth enrolled in our Early Childhood Education and Out of School Time (OST) program receives a special gift for the holidays. For many families we serve, the joy of giving gifts is often dampened by the reality of limited resources. Join us and help make this season a little brighter!

Ways To Support Our Campaign:


  • Purchase Wishlist Items – Help us make the holidays bright for as many as 3,000+ children and youth in Little Village, North Lawndale and Albany Park. By partnering with our development team you’ll help purchase specific items from children’s Wishlists. 

  • Host an Employee Fundraiser Still operating in a virtual setting? No problem! We help our partners work with their employees to raise much needed funds for children and families. Your contributions will help purchase gifts that bring joy to those we serve!

  • Purchase Gift CardsGiving a gift card might not be your first choice at the holiday party, but they still make great surprises for youth and teens enrolled in our Out of School Time (OST) and TeenREACH programs!
