Every year, The Service Club of Chicago partners with individuals, businesses and organizations to raise funds that will help some of Chicagoland’s neediest charities. Even if you are not a member of The Service Club, you can still be an important part of this critical effort. Your gift directly supports our mission of serving the welfare, civic, educational and cultural needs of charitable organizations throughout Chicago and the suburbs.
The agencies we assist are facing difficult times. Resources have decreased as needs have increased. Your generosity will help to expand facilities, improve equipment, and initiate new programs, thereby helping to find immediate solutions to the most pressing issues in our community. Organizations often turn to us for items not covered by government or corporate support. Other times we are asked to step in to support them in critical times for unplanned items that might have been either overlooked or unexpected. For many of these organizations, we help to bridge these gaps because there is nowhere else to turn.
Each year, approximately 70 charities submit grant requests to The Service Club of Chicago. SCC’s Philanthropic Committee meticulously vets each and every organization’s grant request to assure that all donations received by SCC are allocated to trusted, worthy organizations every year. Our members devote countless hours to ensure that our donors’ dollars are delivered to the charities that need them the most. Once awarded, The Philanthropic Committee ensures that grant awards are used as intended as grant recipients do not receive cash payments. Instead, SCC directly pays the bills for the approved projects it supports.
Our motto, “No one is greater than the service they render the world,” is truly a calling. Please help us answer the call! Every dollar counts, and there are many ways that you can donate. Please consider donating to The Service Club of Chicago via Individual Giving or our Legacy Society, by contributing via Corporate Gifts or Matching Gifts, or attending one of our many events.
