Online Auction Now Open From Wednesday, June 3 to Saturday, June 13!

The June 2020 Families Together Annual Online Auction is now open and running until Saturday, June 13th.

Help support our mission—all auction proceeds benefit Families Together Cooperative Nursery School located in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood.

Families Together is one of the only preschools in Chicago that offers sliding scale tuition to families with more than 70% of our students qualifying for reduced tuition. Tuition covers a lot but not all of our operating expenses. Fundraising is critical to helping us fulfill our commitments to financial aid; scholarships; a living wage and health and family leave benefits for staff; and training and materials to support our Diversity, Anti-Oppression, and Belonging initiatives.

How will I get the items I win?

After the auction ends, items can be picked up from Families Together: 1500 W. Elmdale Avenue, Chicago, IL 60660. Pick-up times are TBA and all winning bidders will be notified after the auction.

Can items be shipped to me?

Some items can be shipped, while others are available for pick-up only. Please check the Special Instructions section below each item description for this information. Winning bidders are responsible for all shipping costs. We will primarily use USPS Priority for items that require shipping, which includes insurance and tracking. Please keep in mind this cost ranges from $7.35 (Priority envelope) on up. We can expedite shipping if requested, at winner's expense. You can also choose to have an item shipped non-Priority to reduce the cost, but keep in mind this does not include any tracking or insurance options. Families Together cannot be held responsible for any delayed, lost, or damaged items once they are shipped.
