Want to help families in crisis? United Way created “Give5Here” to do just that—provide more resources to prevent homelessness, assist seniors, build skills for jobs and more. And now, The Chicago Community Trust has stepped up to “Give5” in a big way with a grant that matches dollar-for-dollar every donation up to $500,000. Now, those who want to help people with immediate needs can double their gift through the Chicago Community Trust grant.
