                 Raised in Chicago, Ready for the World!             

The Ensemble Español has the potential to raise $1.5 million dollars in the next three years, and we can do it with your help!

The Caerus Foundation Growth Grant has awarded $500,000 to the Ensemble, with the challenge to raise an additional $500,000 in the next three years. Once that goal is reached, the Ensemble will be rewarded with a final $500,000, for a total of $1.5 million!

With these vital funds, Ensemble Español is poised to expand arts education programming, hire full-time dancers, increase audiences and stabilize the company for the next 40 years.

 Your donation supports initiatives such as:

  • The American Spanish Dance and Music Festival, featuring world-renowned artists and musicians
  • Production of the annual Holiday Family Concerts at Northeastern Illinois University
  • Establishing the company as a full-time professional performance company 
  • Increasing the educational programming of the company
  • and much more!

For more information on the Raised in Chicago matching campaign, please contact Carolyn Aguila, Ensemble Español's director of development, at or (773) 442-5999. 

Your gift can also count towards the Goodwin Gift Challenge, doing good for the University in two places at once! Read more.

Thank you for your gift!
