Whether it’s the start of the school year, sports league or camp season, Keshet is always in need of additional supplies for programs. We can provide you with a list of items to purchase or collect from your friends. Amazon Wish Lists work great for these purposes.
Do you have friends who would be interested in learning more about the important work Keshet does in our community? Host a parlor meeting at your home or business. A representative from Keshet will join to discuss Keshet’s mission and ways for people to get involved.
Facebook makes it easy for your friends to donate to a cause that’s important to you. When you host a Facebook fundraiser, you also bring awareness to the important work that Keshet is doing.

Make Keshet part of your family’s or business giving tradition. We can provide you with a Keshet tzedakah box. When it’s full, we can pick it up from you or it can be delivered to Keshet’s Business Office in Northbrook.
Keshet has the tools to set up a secure web page that allows you to share your story and collect donations for Keshet. These pages are perfect for b’nai mitzvah projects or collecting donations in lieu of gifts for a birthday party or wedding.
Bar/bat mitzvahs are a great opportunity to collect donations in support of Keshet’s services and programs. This can be done through hosting an event, launching a fundraising campaign or asking guests to make donations to Keshet in honor of the occasion. We’re happy to talk with families about ideas and share past successful examples.

At Keshet, our programs are designed to provide choice, giving adults with disabilities the same rights, freedom to make their own choices and deserve to have their voices heard just as anyone else. Adults at GADOL have recently joined advocacy groups, where they spend time learning what their rights are and how to express those rights. As a result, our adults have become more equipped to self-advocate and independently make their own choices, allowing them to spend their days exactly how they want to.
This past weekend, my friends and I made the trip up to Camp Chi and Perlstein Retreat Center for the Fall Shabbaton. The Shabbaton is a weekend away for adults within the Keshet community to participate in all kinds of fun activities, celebrate Shabbat and hang out with friends and staff. Although this is only my second time going, I look forward to the Shabbaton every year and this year’s was so much fun.
