2021 Operating Gifts

We are excited to announce our 2021 operating gifts to the following organizations.  Each organization was selected by one of our Board Members or staff after careful research to recommend an agency whose work benefits children and youth and aligns with TriBraining’s mission to reach and teach all learners.  

Chicago HOPES for Kids provides educational support for children who reside in homeless shelters by providing them with “the resources and encouragement needed to succeed academically, despite the challenges of homelessness.”

Evanston History Center collects, preserves, and interprets the rich history of the City of Evanston and all its people through exhibits, educational programs, and research facilities. The History Center is housed in the former home of Vice President Charles Gates Dawes who served under Calvin Coolidge.


Institute for Therapy through the Arts provides customized creative arts therapies to individuals of all ages, couples and families through art, dance/movement, drama, and music.  ITA also provides professional development opportunities and presentations for mental health professionals, clients, caregivers/family members, and students.
