This holiday season, please support our efforts to preserve the historic Preston Bradley Center
Designed by renowned theater architect JEO Pridmore to house The Peoples Church of Chicago
, the massive building opened in 1926, at the height of Uptown’s glory days.
Today, the Preston Bradley Center
is not just a piece of history—it is a bustling hub for community engagement, arts and culture, and spiritual growth. The building hosts a homeless shelter; the 2 Li’l Fishes free lunch program; the Uptown Arts Center, with studio and gallery space for visual artists; performance venues for live theatre, music and dance; and three church congregations.
But the structure is showing its age, and we could use your help! Your donation will directly support the preservation of this century-old landmark, enabling us to repair and upgrade outdated facilities, increase accessibility, and ensure that the Preston Bradley Center remains a vibrant home for community, creativity, and spirituality in the years to come.
