Donations accepted using all major credit cards.

Financial contributions have always been a fundamental part in the pursuit of our mission. As one of the greatest philanthropists, Mother Teresa said, “To keep a lamp burning, we have to put oil in it.”

Austin Special Chicago has grown from the grassroots since 1953 from the labor and dedication of its founders, who were committed to keep their children in a normalized community setting rather than in an institution. By your financial contribution, you join us in honoring their vision and in keeping the lamp burning.

Any amount of donation, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and will directly benefit our Developmental Training and Residential programs. Donations may be designated by the donor as:

f Unrestricted for use as needed in the general operating fund to benefit the DT program and/or the Residential program
f Restricted for use to benefit the DT program
f Restricted for use to benefit the Residential program
f Restricted for transportation services
f Restricted for building repairs and maintenance
f Specified to meet other needs

Austin Special Chicago is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
