The Chicagoland Jewish community is one of the most vibrant, diverse and philanthropic in the country, located in an area that serves as a strong hub for innovation, technology and education. ORT Chicago, currently based in Northbrook, IL, operates as a regional office for ORT America, the leading fundraising organization for World ORT. Working in coordination with ORT America’s main office in New York, ORT Chicago helps collect contributions for ORT’s growing global network of schools and programs in 35 countries and impacting over 300,000 students annually.

ORT Chicago engages in a wide variety of development and community outreach activities, including three major annual events – Leaders Lunch (October), our new ORT Sunday Funday event (formerly known as Party Planning Showcase), scheduled for January 2019, and Lunch with a View (April). Smaller events, including parlor meetings, are also held during the year, many led by our active lay leadership. ORT Chicago outreach includes not only Illinois, but also Wisconsin and several other nearby states. We welcome and appreciate your involvement and support.
