Support the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute

Generous contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations help fund the Institute’s educational programs, clinical services to underserved and at-risk groups within the community and public education activities. 

Since its founding in 1932, the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute has provided leadership in psychoanalytic education, scholarship, clinical services and research.  Its graduates and faculty are highly skilled practitioners of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.  They are also the teachers, supervisors and consultants to new generations of mental health practitioners.  In addition, they offer mental health expertise to community organizations, mental health agencies, schools, courts, businesses and other institutions.  In these many ways, the impact of the work of the Institute is far-reaching.

Donors who contribute $1,000 and above to the annual campaign are welcomed into the Leadership Society and recognized for their generous gifts. All gifts, regardless of size, are welcome and appreciated. The Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute is a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.  Your gift is tax-deductible.
