Kimpton Cares + DAISIE Foundation Holiday Drive

Thank you for those who supported Kimpton Cares of Chicago and the Daisie Foundation with our back to school drive!  We successfully raised funds for more than 500 backpacks donated to students at Perkins Bass Elementary School!  Please find some amazing press coverage (

 The next initiative the Kimpton Cares of Chicago volunteer organization will support is the Daisie Foundation Holiday Initiative.  Each year, Daisie Foundation gifts more than 1,200 students with surprise holiday cheer.  Four to five schools are selected each year in underserved communities and areas of Chicago.  Their faculty are carefully vetted to ensure we are giving to the most caring group of teachers in the city.  Gifts of toys, books, games, and holiday treats are delivered with the help of Santa and Mrs. Claus, while faculty and staff are invited to enjoy a special luncheon complete with their own holiday gifts. 

If you are interested in giving, funds off this page will be directly issued to the Daisie Foundation, a 501C Non-Profit Organization in Chicago.  Alternatively, if you would like to give direct, please visit their page (

Thank you, and happy holidays!
