The Chicago Community Trust
As our region’s community foundation, The Chicago Community Trust unites generous donors, committed nonprofits and caring residents to effect lasting change that moves our entire region forward. For more than 100 years, donors have entrusted their philanthropic resources and visions to our stewardship. Guided by our deep knowledge of the community, we fund, lead, convene and collaborate to address the greatest and most critical needs facing the Chicago region. Our approach centers on both tackling the region’s immediate needs and addressing the root causes of deep-seated issues to make a tangible, lasting impact. The strength of our expertise goes to work—no matter what your philanthropic goals— to ensure your generosity can do the greatest good for our region and beyond. We work with a number of partnerships and initiatives to accomplish this work.
