Enrich lives and build community with your gift today!

Your support of North House helps craft to come alive every day, bringing hope and joy to folks across during a very challenging year.. 

Your gift today is needed to:

  • Host online programs with craftspeople from across the country and around the world that gather the North House community to celebrate and share in the joys of the boreal landscapes and handwork traditions.
  • Advance our youth and family programming efforts, strengthening our work with Cook County schools and families and expanding opportunities for young makers near and far.
  • Pursue low cost, high impact campus improvements that will keep the folk school ready to welcome everyone back to the shores of Lake Superior when the time is right.
  • Develop new initiatives to keep the North House community connected and moving forward, even in challenging times.
