Community Impact

The Trust offers a number of opportunities to direct your charitable giving into our local community—from impact investing, to giving circles that unite likeminded donors for greater philanthropic power.

Forms & Resources

Our staff provides personalized service for your giving needs. In addition to helping you choose a giving plan, we are here to help with making sound investments, maximizing your tax benefits and handling the paperwork along the way.

We offer donor advised fund holders online access—add money or make grants from anywhere in the world, 24/7 through our online portal, Instant Impact.

We also host donor events throughout the year, like our signature series of Impact Chicago briefings on timely topics in philanthropy and community.
