Updates on Past Events

Your support makes everyday life possible for each of our 174 residents like Katie! 

When Katie’s parents, John and Valerie, needed to find a home where their daughter living with a disability could thrive – a place equipped with all the resources she needed – they were overjoyed with the exceptional level of care that they found for Katie at Marklund, made possible by donors like you.

As part of this year’s year-end appeal, the Broschka Family generously matched your gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000. Your year-end gift, combined with their Matching gift, helped us raise $111,865 to carry out our mission to make 2019 the best yet at Marklund.

Thank you for being part of the Marklund Family and for making everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities.

We are smiling thanks to you!
Thank you to all of our friends and family for making our Brighter Smiles Summer Campaign a success! As we announced this past Saturday at Summer Games, we not only achieved, but exceeded our $50,000 goal to renovate the Marklund Wasmond Center Dental Office. As of today you helped us to raise $58,000 to complete this project! Thank you so much from all our 57 residents in Elgin!
Congrats & many thanks to the top 3 Fundraisers:

Run, Walk & Roll History

Marklund’s Run, Walk & Roll was established in 2013 as a fun and community friendly way to raise awareness and support for Marklund’s programs and services.  From the initial Run, Walk & Roll logo designed by Geneva High School students, to the enormous support from our local businesses, neighbors and friends, this event continues to surpass all expectations.
