Chicago for Mexico & Puerto Rico Relief Fund

On behalf of the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance, our most heartfelt gratitude goes out to those who donated to the Chicago for Mexico and Puerto Rico Relief Fund. Together we raised more than $200,000 thanks to the generosity of individuals and organizations across Chicago.

Money raised through the fund will help support rebuilding efforts and those that were affected by the earthquakes in Mexico and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. In the upcoming weeks funds will be equally disbursed and delivered to Red Cross Mexico (Cruz Roja Mexicana), the American Red Cross Chapter of Puerto Rico. and other non-profit organizations doing relief effort work in Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Special thanks to the following groups, who hosted fundraising events that contributed to the success of this fund:

Old Town School of Folk Music
