As a not-for-profit neighborhood group, we rely on fundraising, dues, and donations to sustain our local initiatives and efforts.
Here are a few things we have done over the past year:
- Through the Education Committee, the BCO donated $3,000 to each of our three neighborhood CPS schools (Pulaski, Burr, and Drummond)
- Helped neighbors enjoy the pool more, by funding the installation of new deck chairs at the Holstein Park pool.
- Continued to support public art by sponsoring artwork for local green space
- Kept Bucktown the “greenest neighborhood in Chicago” by hosting a park clean up project on Earth Day. (And we’re doing it again this year! Join us!)
- Helped neighbors have a night out together by organizing and sponsoring neighborhood Movies in the Park. (see the 2017 schedule and volunteer to help!)
- Educated neighbors on important issues at an Education Forum at one of our neighborhood schools
Please consider donating to the Bucktown Community Organization today; we appreciate any amount!
