Chicago Cares has been building volunteer opportunities since 1991. We are volunteer activation experts, mobilizing more than 34,000 volunteers each year. No other organization has inspired more people to give back to our city.
Chicago Cares builds customized projects that meet your goals, celebrate important events, or engage a key group or departments. We will work with you to determine the size, scope and focus of your event ensuring that at the end of the day, your employees will walk away with a greater understanding of your corporate goals and a deeper connection to their community. Through service, your employees will learn more about the challenges facing our city. They will gain a new appreciation for the needs of individual communities and discover the positive impact that each of us can make when we volunteer our time.
Employee volunteer programs are profitable long after your project is complete. In one survey, 84% of corporate executives saw direct bottom line benefits to employee volunteer programs such as improved retention, better management and collaboration. Benefits of a corporate partnership with Chicago Cares may include:
Improved employee recruitment and retention
Increased employee morale
Strengthened corporate reputation within the community
Additional opportunities for leadership training and team building
Civic education and engagement
Our ongoing presence in the community allows us to identify real needs in the neighborhoods we serve and ensures that the projects we create deliver a sustainable impact. Partnering with Chicago Cares provides you the expertise, community connections, logistical prowess and peer network necessary for a successful event.
We have a wide variety of opportunities available to fit your company's goals and budget. All of our corporate volunteer opportunities offer you valuable service experience that can easily be incorporated into a year-long relationship with Chicago Cares! A company that participates in Celebration of Service in January, Serve-a-thon in June and a customized day of service at a time of their choosing will effortlessly impact the community through multiple touch points throughout the year.
