CELEBRATE MAKING DREAMS A REALITY

When we dream together, hope becomes so palpable that it drives us to make our dreams a reality. The Simple Good’s founder, Priya Shah, dreamt of seeing an inclusive platform that highlighted independent artists and celebrated, unified, and gave back to Chicago’s community that inspired her vision.  

For 10 years, you have united with us every fall and made an incredible impact on youth across the world. With your help, City of Big Dreams fundraiser has helped The Simple Good:

  • Provide SEL-based Art Programs to over 7,000 students worldwide
  • Serve 16+ communities nationally 
  • Collaborate with 500+ artists to spread the ‘simple good’

We invite you to celebrate all of the dreams that we have been able to make a reality over the past 10 years with your support. 

This year City of Big Dreams will allow us to support 1,000 students in actualizing their dreams. When a student enrolls in a TSG Youth Art Program we commit to igniting their hope, equipping them with mindfulness tools, and helping them identify the good that exists within themselves and the world around them. 

Join us at City of Big Dreams, where we celebrate making dreams a reality through showcasing the ‘simple good’ of Chicago through the arts.
