A Letter from the SLN Board Chair


Dear Sibling Leadership Network Supporter:

As we enter the holiday season and reflect on the past year, I would like to give thanks to this amazing network of support. This year, SLN celebrates its 15th Anniversary!  The SLN was founded in 2007 from seeing a true need for more of a focus on siblings of people with disabilities. Over the past 15 years, our organization has grown to meet the needs of siblings across the country. We need your help to ensure SLN is here for today, and the future generations of siblings. SLN’s vision for the future is to grow, expand, and strengthen.

This year, we continued to address the unique issues of siblings. We provided information, support, research, and advocacy. And we engaged siblings in new and unique ways such as podcasts, Sibposiums, and Sib2Sib Mentoring.

As we look to 2023, we ask you to consider supporting the SLN this holiday season through our Holiday Appeal Campaign.

There are two ways to donate this year—online or mailing a check.

1. Online donation

You can donate online with PayPal or with a Debit/Credit Card.  Visit the donation page. Select whether you want to pay with PayPal or by Debit or Credit Card.  You can choose to make a one-time donation or a monthly donation.

2. Send a check

We also accept checks made out to the Sibling Leadership Network. Please mail them to our office at:

Sibling Leadership Network
332 S. Michigan Ave, Ste 121 – S240
Chicago, IL 60604-4434

The Holiday Appeal continues through the end of December. Please help us spread the word about the campaign and share with your social networks, along with a note about what SLN means to you.

We appreciate all of your support throughout the year and are looking forward to continuing to build our community in 2023! I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful and restful holiday season. Thank you for supporting the mission and vision of the Sibling Leadership Network.
