Return to Chicago Urban League

Welcome to our Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Resource Page

The Chicago Urban League is committed to educational, economic and social progress for African Americans, and we believe that a stronger African American community makes a stronger Chicago. Each year, our programs help more than 15,000 youth and adults improve their academic performance and prepare for college, prepare for the workforce and start careers, become first-time homeowners, launch new businesses, or strengthen their leadership skills. 

We rely on the generosity of our donors. An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. 

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
