CHARITABLE GIVING 

As of 2023, we have shifted our charitable giving policy toward a position of partnership. As such, we will be looking to exclusively partner with 1-3 local nonprofit partners for the entirety of each year.

2023 Partners: West Suburban Community Pantry, the GardenWorks Project, and Youth Outlook

2024 Partners: Sharing Connections and Youth Outlook

Our hope is to maximize our impact and better focus our limited resources by providing fundraising and volunteer support exclusively to our selected partner(s) throughout the year.

We ask that prospective nonprofit partners request consideration using the form below. The causes that resonate most strongly with us are those related to: 
 

  • Rights protection and support services for women and marginalized groups, including (but not limited to) BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities (particularly youth populations), disabled veterans, and individuals with special needs.

  • Food and housing security

  • Suicide prevention and mental health support

  • Environmental sustainability initiatives

  • Education
     

We are particularly interested in partnering with organizations that offer opportunities for volunteer engagement and/or education, as we feel this helps connect our communities in meaningful ways.

Thank you for understanding this shift in our approach to charitable giving. If you would like us to consider your group for partnership next year, please apply using the form shown here.

We have selected Sharing Connections and Youth Outlooks as our NFP partners for 2024. Feel free to submit your 501(c)3 organization for partnership consideration in 2025!

Thanks for submitting!
