Help achieve the dream of a 100% literate Chicago.

By giving to us, you’re supporting all 120+ of our members. When you give monthly, you’re sustaining our work and ensuring that the organizations we serve have the resources they need, day in and day out.

Donors who give more than $1,000 to the CLA in a fiscal year become part of the Boundless Society, and get the opportunity to engage more deeply in our work, including special listing in our printed annual report, VIP tickets to CLA events, and a special gift upon joining.

If you would like to make your gift in honor of, or in memory of, an individual, please contact us at

Other ways to support us:

Show your support for literacy with merchandise from the official CLA shop. Purchases further the work of the CLA and our partners, in Chicago and beyond.
