The Chicago Fund announces
164 grantees for 2020.

On May 20, 2020, the Partnership for Safe and Peaceful Communities announced the recipients of its $1 million rapid-response grants from its Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities. The grantees are 164 small organizations serving 21 communities on the South and West Sides that experience high levels of gun violence. PSPC is a coalition of more than 50 foundations and funders that have aligned their funding to support community-based, evidence-backed, sustainable strategies to address gun violence.

The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities

Together, we can empower communities, strengthen relationships and build trust across Chicago.

We believe in equity, fairness and opportunity.

The Chicago Fund is different.

Donors to this Fund also are engaged in larger, long-term efforts to help address the problem of violence prevention and community safety. What makes this Fund different from those efforts is that its intended purpose is to provide highly-targeted, immediate support to smaller, neighborhood-based groups over the summer of 2020.

Together, we can create more peaceful communities.

Grants from the Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful communities support community-based organizations to create the conditions for violence prevention and reduction in our city. Grant awards will be announced in May 2020.
