Corporate Giving

Local businesses can help shape the future of Park West though both corporate financial support and in-kind giving. In-kind donations are used at our spring gala, which aims to raise $100,000 every year in order to support the school’s operating costs. In addition to items for auction (visit our “Auction Item Donations” page to submit an item), we are always in need of food, beverages and decorations. If you have goods or services available for donation, please contact specialevents@parkwestcoop.org to discuss your potential donation. Aside from bettering your community and gaining a “good feeling,” you’ll be featured in our gala program, which crosses the eyes of 125+ families across Chicagoland.

Of course, we will always accept financial donations if that’s more your style!

And if you want to go old school, simply click here to download a donation form, and mail it (or drop it off) with a check made payable to “Park West Cooperative Nursery School” to:

Park West Cooperative
2335 North Orchard Street

Quotes from Our Park West Family

"Park West will give you an amazing understanding of childhood education that you won't get anywhere else. The faculty, the classrooms, Jane. It's a special place, and you'll be a better parent for going there."

—KK Neilsen C., former parent
