In the philanthropic sector, The Chicago Community Trust is committed to maximizing our donors’ impact and efficacy through strategic grantmaking and bold leadership. Working together, the Trust, its donors and its community partners leverage collective knowledge, creativity and resources for a greater impact than any of us can make alone.
For 100 years, the Trust has offered innovative ways for everyone in our region to continue the proud tradition of philanthropy in greater Chicago. We have crafted giving programs that allow a wide range of donors to support the causes and communities they care about. In doing so, we hope to encourage others—especially young Chicagoans—to join us in giving of their time, treasure and talent to benefit our shared community.
