Help us Make an Impact

Clearbrook has been serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1955. We provide services for 8,000 families annually, and we are committed to our mission of enriching the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Your donation will have a significant impact on our individuals.

Other Ways to Give

Generations of Generosity

A legacy gift, or bequest gift, will benefit future generations. In today’s environment, these gifts are more important than ever to ensure Clearbrook is here to care for our individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities now and in the future.

Providing us with documentation of your will/estate plans is the best way to ensure that your gift is used in the way you intend. Of course, some of our donors prefer to remain anonymous and we will keep this information confidential.

This information helps Clearbrook plan for our future. We rely on bequests and other planned gifts to meet current funding needs, strengthen our financial position, establish new programs, and enhance existing ones. These gifts and commitments ensure the longevity of Clearbrook.

Please be sure to list our legal name, Clearbrook, and our tax ID number, 36-2420176, in your documents.

Thank you for considering the inclusion of Clearbrook’s mission as part of your life story through a legacy gift. 

Please contact Andi if you have any questions.

Make a Gift

If you would like to donate to Clearbrook, please mail it to:

Attn: Development Department
1835 W. Central Road
Arlington Heights, IL 60005

Checks should be made payable to Clearbrook.

To donate by phone, please call 847-385-5014.

Your donations are tax-deductible.  A letter of acknowledgment will be mailed to you for tax-keeping purposes, so please be sure to include a full mailing address along with your donation.

Did you know that you can donate your stocks that have appreciated in value to Clearbrook and not pay capital gains tax? In addition, gifts of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value. For stocks that have depreciated in value, it may make more sense to cash out first, before making a donation. Talk with your broker or tax advisor to determine which option is best for you.

If you wish to donate stock, please email, mail or call us with the following information:

  • Your first and last name, full address, phone number and email address
  • The kind of stock you are donating
  • The number of shares (or approximate number) you are donating
  • The name and phone number of your broker

Please contact Andi Wojcik, Director of Development, for further instructions. She can be reached via email or phone at 847-385-5014

A letter of acknowledgment will be sent to you for tax-keeping purposes upon receipt of the cash proceeds from the sale of your stock.

Make some space in your garage – and help Clearbrook too!

If your car is taking up space or eating away at your wallet, now’s the perfect time to trade it in for a tax deduction. Clearbrook partners with UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago, another non-profit organization dedicated to supporting people with disabilities, to accept any and all vehicle donations with no questions asked and zero hassle. Through their SeguinWorks Auto Marketplace, we will take care of picking it up, selling it in their used car lot, transferring the title, and providing you – the donor – with a tax letter for an end-of-year deduction.

If you would like to donate a vehicle or get additional information, please contact Michael Dalton via email or at 224-801-6183 ext. 222.

At this time, Clearbrook is unable to accept any donations of used furniture, medical equipment, clothing etc. If that changes, this page will be updated accordingly.
