Pledge Partners

As you are aware, CSS receives funding through the State of Illinois. Sadly, the levels of reimbursement are lacking in several programs. Even with careful budgeting and monitored spending, we must look outside of those funding sources to be able to meet programming expenses. We depend on donations from the community and family members such as you to be able to provide exceptional services and to provide some of the “extras” to make life better for all program participants.
Please consider donating $25, $50, or $100 on a recurring basis or as a one time donation so CSS can continue to enhance opportunities to live, learn, work, and play. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, meaning contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
