Today, The Shelter Club has approximately 75 active members representing primarily the communities of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff and more than 65 non-resident and associate members. Over the years, The Shelter Club has contributed more than $13 million to the Allendale Association and remains the school’s largest private donor.

Funds contributed by The Shelter Club have been used for many projects, big and small. Larger projects include numerous student housing units, a new cafeteria (Shelter Club Commons) and, most recently, a new student technology center. Smaller, but no less important projects include new vehicles for transporting children and their families, and scholarships awarded so that children can continue their education after graduating from Allendale.

In addition to providing financial support, The Shelter Club maintains close relationships with staff and students.
