Thank you! Your generous support to our annual fund helps us live our mission and keep our promise to make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities. Your gifts allow us to provide each infant, child, teen, and adult the Marklund standard of care – well above the requirements of the State of Illinois.

Select which amount you wish to donate on the form below.

Each year we fund raise to help meet a financial gap of approximately $15,290 per resident, per year. These funds are needed to provide “The Marklund Standard of Care,” the cost of which is not covered by State of Illinois reimbursements. If you are able to help to close this funding gap, check the box below.
