Donate to a McCormick Foundation Fund

Matching Funds and Partners

The Communities Program helps to transform and improve communities across Chicagoland through partnerships with local sports teams and philanthropic organizations. With our Funds and Partners, money is raised from the general public through campaigns, special events, and sponsorships. For these specific Funds, the McCormick Foundation matches money raised at 50 cents on the dollar to increase the impact of charitable donations. In addition, the Foundation and our Partners pay all expenses, which means 100 percent of all gifts, plus the 50 percent match, is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations working to empower children, adults, and families living in under-resourced communities to improve their lives and become self-sufficient.

Other Community Partners

In select instances, the McCormick Foundation partners with local organizations on issue-related campaigns, coordinating fundraising and granting activities with designated partners. Also, the Foundation facilitates donations to Cantigny Park, part of the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. As such, donations to Cantigny Park or issue-related campaigns from the public are not supported with additional matching funds from the Foundation unless otherwise designated.

The Robert R. McCormick Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3)public charity, IRS registration #36-3689171.
