Allendale is fortunate to have dedicated partners—individuals and organizations united in purpose—making our transformative work their personal mission.
Our commitment to the “greater good” has been the cornerstone of Allendale’s century-long history.

Jason Keeler, President & CEO of Allendale, emphasizes, “Together, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of Illinois’ most vulnerable youth and families.”
On GivingTuesday, November 28, 2023, people worldwide unite for a day of generosity, using their individual power to support charities in their communities. This year, we are especially grateful for the partnership of two exceptionally generous donors—the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County and an anonymous supporter—both tripling your donation on GivingTuesday! This generous support extends throughout the year, benefiting countless youth and families.
