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.
