Madonna Mission opens the doors of welcome through education. We are a nonprofit organization providing education and resettlement support programs for refugee individuals and families. Find out how you can help here.
Over 19,000 items were collected for 17 nonprofits, thanks to record-breaking donations, abundant volunteers and a beautiful Fall day. We are grateful to all of the families and groups who donated by the vanload — especially Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette, Crow Island School in Winnetka and the New Trier High School baseball teams. A great community event in every way!
Nonprofits looking for new ways to get noticed by the press came together at our 2018 “Meet Your Press” continental breakfast and panel discussion. This interactive discussion was lead by local news professionals from N.E. Metro Chicago print and digital, daily and weekly papers, magazines and social media outlets. Attendees received tips for writing effective press releases, pitching a story, getting your story noticed and the kind of content each media is most interested in. It was a “can’t miss” opportunity to talk to the press — and to network with other local Nonprofits. Stay tuned for information about our next Nonprofit Events coming up this Spring — “Managing Volunteers” and “Successful Fundraising Strategies”.

The Volunteer Center was proud to host a stellar group of Nonprofit Executive Directors and Board Officers at a thought-provoking and informative Board Development/Recruitment Training Program, presented by Executive Service Corps Professionals Mike Christ and Michael A. Snipes, on June 10th at Avli Estiatorio in Winnetka. Attendees enjoyed a lively discussion about some of the biggest challenges facing nonprofits today and shared ideas — while they sampled exceptionally delicious menu items from Avli’s new cafe, Avli Rotisserie.
