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 and early fall of 2021.

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 April 2021.
