Colonel Robert R. McCormick worked to make his community a better place and left a legacy of service. He believed we all can be leaders with the power to change the future. For nearly 60 years the Foundation has kept those beliefs alive.
In continuing the legacy, the McCormick Foundation, through its Communities Program, partners with media outlets, sports teams and philanthropic organizations across the country to transform and improve communities. With our Fund Partners, money is raised from the general public through campaigns, special events and sponsorships. The McCormick Foundation matches all money raised for the fund at 50 cents on the dollar to increase the impact of charitable donations.
With the Foundation and our Partners paying all expenses, 100 percent of all donations, plus the match, is granted through our local Fund Partner to qualified nonprofit organizations with programs that empower disadvantaged children, adults and families to improve their lives, strengthen the community and become self-sufficient.
