Letter from the Executive Director and Board of Governors Chair Dear Friends, We have completed a wonderful year at Winnetka Community House. The success of our mission to provide a wide variety of educational, cultural, social and recreational opportunities is made possible due to the efforts of our dedicated and energetic staff, volunteers and instructors. Volunteer involvement on the part of so many made it possible for the organization to have a successful year of fundraising activities, and the generous contributions and commitments we received from families and friends continue to help us build a bigger and better variety of offerings for individuals of all ages. The outstanding community-wide support we receive makes all that happens at Winnetka Community House possible. We are committed to connect our own goals with the wants and needs of our constituents who see WCH programs as a means to enrich life for themselves and their families. With your ongoing support, we will continue to thrive in our second century of service to the community. Once again, on behalf of the thousands served annually at Winnetka Community House, thank you for your gifts of time, talent and treasure. Sincerely,

Timothy P. McCabe                                                                            Carrie Healy Executive Director 2012-2013 Chair Board of Governors

Annual Fund

Through donations of time and resources, friends and staff of Winnetka Community House have helped strengthen the institution’s foundation and enriched the lives of others. At the close of the year, over $297,000 in unrestricted and restricted gifts were received from 808 donors. Many thanks and gratitude to Board of Governors, Woman’s Board and all who participated.

Woman’s Board Activities

The Woman’s Board made significant contributions to Winnetka Community House through their countless hours of volunteer work and their generous financial support. Antiques + Modernism Winnetka is the Woman’s Board’s primary fundraiser. Proceeds are used to fund needs throughout the Community House, including capital purchases. Chair Kristin Lolli and Co-Chair Laura Reynolds – along with donations of financial support, goods and services from individuals, organizations and businesses – made the event a huge success, raising over $106,000! The 2012-2013 Woman’s Board kicked off the holiday season with Breakfast with the number of Santa. Over 300 guests in children and parents attendance at wch’s BREAKFAST visited Winnetka WITH SANTA Community House to get a glimpse of Old St. Nick. In March, 150 guests attended the Wine and Beer Tasting Event. Patrons were able to taste-test over 60 varieties of flavorful, well-priced wines and beers, while learning new secrets of the trade.


Thanks to the Woman’s Board’s generosity, Winnetka Community House netted over $115,000 from these wonderful events during the 2012-2013 fiscal year. We are extremely grateful for their hard work and generosity.


Winnetka Community House received $12,000 in honor of WCH’s 100th Anniversary and in memory and honor of loved ones. These gifts, often directed toward the general unrestricted fund, can also be a good starting point for a memorial and honorary league gift, endowed scholarship or for the purchase of a special gift for the facility. Over $89,000 was received in restricted gifts to support programs and projects of WCH. They document not only specific knowledge of special facets of the institution’s operations, but also the dedication and commitment of donors who have made these gifts in consultation with the Executive Director and the Director of Development. Children’s Theatre of Winnetka and Village Follies activities the amount provided over WCH received in $54,000 in support restricted gifts for our theater productions and programs and the needs of Matz Hall. In addition, a leadership gift of $250,000 was received during the fiscal year for the Board Designated Endowment.




HOW DID THE COMMUNITY HOUSE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS? To make needed physical plant improvements To purchase ceramic studio equipment and upgrades To purchase new folding chairs for facility events To purchase early childhood program equipment To enhance current computer technology To refinish hardwood floors in seven locations To purchase a new LCD TV for daily schedules To purchase a dance floor and chinaware for events and wedding receptions To purchase new equipment for the Fitness Centre and Group X classrooms To fund a new part-time Graphic Designer and full-time Development Associate To ensure the long-term stability of our organization by increasing our endowment

IN ADDITION TO ACCOMPLISHING THE ABOVE, THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTED PROJECTS WERE ALSO FUNDED: Contributions to scholarship funds Second Century Campaign renovation project of the Legacy Building Upkeep and improvements in the Garden Under the Arches Enhancements in Matz Hall




So much of what happens at Winnetka Community House is dependent upon a dedicated and talented support group of volunteers. We recognize and thank all those listed below who have given their time for the benefit of the mission we serve. In addition, we would like to thank our many instructors, parents of students and theater volunteers, who unfortunately are far too numerous to list individually, for making 2012-2013 so memorable.

Winnetka Community Nursery School

By providing a rich and creative curriculum, highly qualified staff, opportunities for parental involvement and partnership and a sense of school community, Winnetka Community Nursery School (WCNS) strives to be a model of excellence in early childhood education. Preschool classes are offered for children ages two through four in addition to afternoon enrichment programs for children ages three through kindergarten. WCNS was founded during World War II and continues to be a thriving educational institution in the community. WCNS runs the Winnetka Children’s Fair, a 67-year-old community event held each year in June, kicking off summer for local children. Please visit our website,, for more information.

North Shore Art League

The second floor of Winnetka Community House has been home to the League for over 89 years. Art classes, workshops, lectures and special art events are held in both the sky-lit studio built for the League in 1932 and in the fully-equipped print room. As the only art center in Winnetka, NSAL fills a strong educational and cultural need in the community. The League maintains strong ties throughout the community. Last year, NSAL partnered with Winnetka Community House on its 100th Anniversary Reaching for the Stars Art Project. Among other collaborations were the New Trier Township Peer Jury Program, providing volunteer opportunities to youth identified as being “at risk” and participation in various Winnetka Park District events. The League also offers annual scholarships to graduating New Trier High School students who exhibit excellence in the arts. Visit or for more information.

(Winnetka Youth Organization) The Winnetka Youth Organization (also known as The YO to its teen participants) continues to be the only youth serving agency of its kind in Winnetka. We are proud to report another year of popular programming and services to over 1,000 of the area’s young people. The organization offers a variety of safe, substance-free activities after school and on the weekends that range from recreation, social service, education, and leadership opportunities that take place in addition to our open drop-in center hours. Our popular monthly concerts and open mic nights not only offer our teen musicians and performers an outlet for positive self-expression, they also serve a vital role for our attendees who choose to spend their weekend nights in our positive, substance free space. In addition to our monthly service projects, we also take an annual summer service trip and have worked with Habitat for Humanity the past two years to give teens a meaningful community service experience in a different part of the country. We have a great Youth Board who is very engaged and committed to the success of the center and our programs. By offering a variety of programming and continuing to build a strong community of teens who love the “YO,� we are thrilled to share that over 80% of teens we have surveyed identify that our services have allowed them to gain or improve upon their community involvement, responsibility, and generosity. To find out more about our events and services, please visit our website at or find us on Facebook!

Do You Have a Valid Will? Recent statistics reveal that of the 2.5 million persons who die each year in the United States, only 30 percent have a will, and many of those are not valid. A will can ensure that your desires are fulfilled. If you have dependent children, you can designate who will care for them. You can specify who will handle the closing of the estate. You can time the distribution of gifts to children and grandchildren. You can designate the giving of


specific items to family members and friends. You can make provisions to support charitable organizations. A will puts you in control and allows you to make decisions according to your concerns and commitments. We encourage you to call your attorney and make an appointment to have your will prepared or updated. Regardless of whether or not you include Winnetka Community House, please do this for yourself.
