Dear Friend of the Fort Dearborn-Chicago Photo Forum,

Fort Dearborn-Chicago Photo Forum has a rich history. For more than a century, we have contributed to the enhancement of the photographic skills of our members and to the photographic community in general. In 2016, we are celebrating our 130th anniversary!  

We are striving to continue the accomplishments of our past.  However, our organization has steadily shrunk over the last decade and is running at a deficit. We are addressing these issues by offering quality programs and aggressively marketing ourselves to prospective members.   Due to our efforts, during this last year, we have increased our membership by about twenty percent, but it is not enough to cover our costs.


Please help us to continue our mission and improve our programs and activities by making a generous donation to Fort Dearborn-Chicago Photo Forum.  

Fort Dearborn-Chicago is qualified for federal income tax purposes as a 501(c)(3) organization.  Accordingly, your donation will be tax-deductible.
