Better Together. That’s what we mean when we talk about values like diversity and inclusion, empathy and compassion, cultural competency and respect, or responsibility and community. To be a Near North family is to stand in solidarity with the parents, children, faculty, and staff — and to give of yourself in order to make room for others at the table.

Please join with the rest of the Near North community in making a contribution towards our 2019-2020 NNM Annual Giving Campaign. This year’s goal is $390,000, and we encourage all Near North families to participate. Every single gift, regardless of size, plays an important part in this community.

Don't forget, gifts can be broken up throughout the year by making a pledge. It's an easy way to simplify the giving process for you!


Annual giving provides for the success of ALL Near North children. You can direct your gift to the following categories:

  • Area of Greatest Need
  • Accessibility and Affordability
  • Educational Programming
  • Faculty and Staff Development

(The school reserves the right to redirect gifts as needed if a fund has become oversubscribed.)

You can also make your gift via cash, check and/or stock transfer.

Your gift can go twice as far! Check to see if your employer has a matching gift program.

Would you like to drop-off or mail us your pledge or check? Fill out this form, and send it over at your earliest convenience.
