Giving Tuesday


THANK YOU to the 65 donors who contributed more than $8,000 in honor of every family who has needed our help – and to ensure we’re here for the next family at our doors!

Each year, ChicagoCAC recognizes #GivingTuesday as a way to gather support for our mission – especially from people who have not donated to the center before. 2016 marks our 15th year serving children and families healing from child sexual abuse. Since opening our doors in 2001, we’ve helped more than 30,000 children and families find hope and healing.

#GivingTuesday has passed, but you can still make a difference for children and families healing from abuse in Chicago. Donate today to support our work.  

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word and to see the impact your gift has on the children and families we serve!

Your Gift Could Be Matched

If you’ve never given to ChicagoCAC before, now is the time! All first-time donors’ gifts will be matched, dollar for dollar. That means your impact will go twice as far for the children and families we serve!

If you have given before, you know how important your gift is to the children and families served at the center – and #GivingTuesday is no exception. Any amount you give over your last gift to the center will be matched. (Want to confirm your last gift so you can maximize you impact? Please call Elissa at 312-492-3667.)
