What makes a community strong?

You do, by caring about your neighbors and the community in which you live.

Chicago is a city of opportunity, but some kids and families are being left behind. Yet there’s reason to hope, as there is power for real change. Dedicated people are working in their own neighborhoods to develop smart, creative solutions. They just need the support of people like you to bring these solutions to life.

A charitable bequest to the Robert R. McCormick Foundation will help build a brighter future for all of us.
