Fundraising Efforts

Chicago Cubs Charities harnesses the passion of Cubs fans and improves the lives of children and families across Chicago and beyond. Our goal is to provide increased access to sports opportunities and target improvements in health, fitness and education for those at risk. We partner with the most effective programs and organizations to achieve positive impact and demonstrated results.

Through the generosity of Cubs fans, corporate partners and our Cubs Care partner, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, Chicago Cubs Charities is proud to help support the people and organizations that make our city a great place to live, work and play.
