Chicago Tribune Charities logo

The Chicago Tribune is committed to helping the community that it proudly serves. Giving back to the community is the Chicago Tribune’s tradition as well as its commitment to our community. We are about building a bright future for our citizens.

The Chicago Tribune asks its readers for donations to help people in need in communities throughout the city and suburbs. The donations support Chicago Tribune Charities, a Fund of The Chicago Community Foundation. Chicago Tribune Charities funds nonprofit programs and charitable events that help people build their lives through:

  • Encouraging at-risk youth to succeed in school with a goal of going to college
  • Building job and literacy skills for unemployed adults
  • Protecting vulnerable families and children from domestic abuse

Through your generous support, adults learn to read, families learn how to function without violence and teens stay in high school on a career path. Unemployed adults learn new job skills that provide living wages. And young children who struggle with basic reading are given the help that they need to learn and like to read. This support helps transform lives and builds a brighter tomorrow. Please donate today so that your donation helps to improve the story for thousands.

Chicago Tribune Charities is a donor advised fund of The Chicago Community Foundation, a corporate affiliate of The Chicago Community Trust.
