Make a Donation

In addition to the membership fees paid by our member schools, we also rely on our amazing supporters to make CAAEL happen for thousands of students each year. 

If you or your company would like to make a financial donation, we welcome your support. Your tax deductible contribution goes to offset the cost of organizing CAAEL events and helps us reach an ever-expanding network of alternative schools. 

CAAEL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and once a donation is made we will provide you with our tax ID number. 78% of every donation goes directly to programming, 12% to fundraising, and 10% to administrative costs. Don’t forget to check to see if your employer matches donations!

Each and every donation CAAEL receives directly influences and enriches our students’ lives. Through your donations, we are able to make a difference and an impact that we otherwise would not be able to make on our own.

You can donate today in the following ways:

Donations are also accepted via PayPal or Venmo.

If you prefer to mail in a donation, please send it to:

PO Box 602
La Grange, IL 60525-0602
