LSCF 2021 Goals

What's New

Levy Longevity Series

We are excited about the new Levy Longevity Series, which launched in February with Amita Health. We will be hosting events monthly with special guests on topics pertaining to aging well.  Tell your friends!

 

Donor Leaf Wall

We plan to construct a new Donor Leaf Wall with a “Tree of Life” theme and refreshed donor leaf design

 

Expanded Tech Assistance

We have expanded our volunteer tech support to include low vision help for computers and assistance with scheduling vaccines.  Zoom help and simple tech troubleshooting are also still available!

Ongoing Programs

 

Linden Room

We are getting close to our fundraising goal for the full renovation, but there is more to do! This year, we will:

  • Upgrade the audio/visual capabilities

  • Refresh window treatments, chairs and other touches

  • Hang the Walter Burt Adams paintings and two clocks

 

Outdoor Spaces

The LSCF loves the Levy Center Gardens! This year, we will:

  • Create a new vegetable garden with help from the Evanston Garden Club and the ETHS Service Club/Art Department

  • Maintain the north and south gardens

  • Work with the City on the Rothschild Garden

  • Upgrade the water/irrigation system

  • Install bird houses

  • Hosts a garden fundraiser

 

Levy Lecture Series

We will be raising funds to continue to expand our spectacular Levy Lecture lineup (both online and in-person)

 

Jamming Jean

We hope to re-launch Jamming Jean (LIVE!) this summer, Covid-19 vaccine plan permitting. Meanwhile, our goal is to host 3 concerts this year.

 

Fran Randall Concert Series

The Foundation hopes to fund 3 to 4 Fran Randall concerts in the coming year. The first virtual Fran Randall took place in January and we hope the next few will be live at the Levy Center.

  • Northlight Theater
