Here's how the Chicago Tribune is stepping up for a brighter tomorrow.


Chicago Tribune partners with the McCormick Foundation to raise funds through Chicago Tribune Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund. The monies raised and distributed by this philanthropy support local nonprofit organizations focusing on Chicagoland's under-served youth and families.


The Chicago Tribune supports community organizations through grant-making, event sponsorship, editorial and in-kind gifts. Our goal is to raise the profile of our nonprofit partners and the issues they are championing for Chicagoland's under-served youth and families. These issues include: education and literacy, job training and family strengthening.


This is about more than giving money. We are also committed to donating our time and talents to support the community. Our employees get involved and give back through hands-on and skills-based volunteering, nonprofit board service, an annual United Way campaign and an employee matching gifts program.
