The Theraplay Institute, a 50lc(3) nonprofit organization, relies upon the generosity of our donors in so many ways. People are always surprised to learn how small our staff is and how much we achieve with so little. We operate without major benefactors or endowments - entirely with funds earned through our programs and small donations from people who have been touched by Theraplay in some way.

Your donation to our general fund will help us keep our administrative office open, buy supplies for Theraplay treatment, produce our newsletter, plan our next International Conference and more - the nuts and bolts that keeps Theraplay going as an international presence to help families become healthy, happy, and secure.

Dedicate Your Donation for our Annual Appeal/Giving Tuesday Campaign

The Theraplay Instutite is planning something special this year to help a deserving organization in the Chicagoland area to support the community it serves with Theraplay. This campaign will start on November 27, 2018 "Giving Tuesday" and run through the end of the year. Funds raised in excess of our goal will be applied to our general fund.

Dedicate Your Donation for our Scholarship Fund

The Theraplay Institute maintains a scholarship fund to help therapists who work with impoverished clients to receive our training. The fund may also support bringing training to third world countries. If you would like to earmark your donation for this purpose, please check the box on the donation form. Your gift will make someone very happy!

Donate In Memorium

You may also dedicate your donation to a deceased loved one or colleague. Often, family members will suggest donating to us in lieu of flowers, in which case we set up a special memorial fund in that person’s name. This fund will be earmarked for a special purpose chosen by the family or by The Theraplay Institute’s board of directors if the family has not directed otherwise. When making your donation, please provide the name of the person you are memorializing and we will direct your donation to the proper fund. The family will be notified of your donation unless you check the anonymous box. If you are intersted in setting up a memorial fund for a loved one please contact
