Together we can move Lake Street forward.

The last two years were full of unprecedented challenges for the Lake Street community and businesses. The dual impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest left many businesses damaged or destroyed, and others hanging on by a thread.

Our community came together in the aftermath to support the businesses and people who make the corridor the vibrant and transformative place it is for so many. From new stores, to colorful murals and community art - the Lake Street story is now one of a street moving forward, and becoming the vibrant, welcoming place we all know it can be.

Your donations for Give to the Max Day will help Lake Street keep moving forward.

Help ensure that the businesses and non-profits who define Lake Street's character will be able to continue into the future by making a donation today.

This year we're asking donors to support our mission by matching the generosity and fundraising our Board has done in 2022. Your gifts will help us to double the impact of that work, and ensure we have the funds to keep our work moving forward.

Learn about the efforts Lake Street businesses have made to recover and rebuild after the civil unrest and the struggles of COVID-19 on our Not Just a Business Blog, and see how we can move forward together.

The Lake Street Council engages, serves, and advocates for small businesses on Lake Street to ensure it is a thriving community corridor. Lake Street Council is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Together with many partners, we support local businesses and promote and celebrate our diverse community of small businesses and nonprofits.
