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 engages in a wide variety of fundraising and community engagement activities. Our outreach includes not only Illinois, but also Wisconsin and several other nearby states. We are so grateful for our ORT Chicago family, led by an active lay leadership and a dedicated group of longtime supporters.

Currently based in Northbrook, IL, ORT Chicago is a regional office of ORT America, the leading fundraising organization for World ORT. ORT’s global network of schools and programs impacts over 200,000 people annually in 34 countries, by providing access to STEAM education, job training and global citizenship curriculum, grounded in Jewish values.
