The Online Auction is Open!

The 2024 Families Together Online Auction is live and runs until Sunday, March 17 at 10 p.m. with proceeds going to Families Together Cooperative Nursery School in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood. Help us reach our goal of $25,000.

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 contributes to our budget, but doesn't cover all of our operating expenses. Fundraising is critical to helping us fund our commitments to our sliding tuition scale and financial aid; a living wage and health benefits for staff. It also funds 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 Friday, April 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 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 Mail for items that require shipping, which includes insurance and tracking. Please keep in mind this cost ranges from $9.35 (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.
