Imagine Chicago is a non-for-profit corporation with 501©3 status. We rely on private donations as well as fee-for-service income. Most of our seminal programs were launched with support from family foundations. We are always eager to find partners in mission. Individuals donations are deductible to the full extent allowable under the law. They are used to help fund the expansion of the Ubumama maternal health project, internships for young people, scholarships for training courses, and maintenance of our website as a community learning resource. Please help us to enrich and transform communities by empowering human creativity and connection. Your contribution can make a world of difference!

Internships & Volunteer Opportunities


Imagine Chicago’s core staff is intentionally small and comprised primarily of the founder working with young interns on a rotating basis. We greatly value intergenerational, intercultural partnerships which renew and expand the organization with fresh ideas and energy. Interns have included Public Allies, Chicago university students, and a number of interns from abroad, principally from the Kaospilot school in Denmark.   Imagine Chicago also works with volunteers of all ages who contribute invaluable professional services and ideas—not only on the board but in a variety of administrative and programmatic support roles. A new volunteer showing up is an invitation to us to accomplish more. We work hard to match your interests with Imagine Chicago's mission. Please contact us to find out more about current volunteer opportunities.

Join the Discussion - Join the Imagine Movement

Imagine Chicago has inspired projects on six continents and the movement continues to grow. As a result of the gathering of these projects in September 2002 in Chicago, a global learning network of Imagine projects is now established to facilitate an ongoing exchange of ideas and other resources.
