Ways to Give

Give the Gift of a Great Future

Youth across Chicago face an uncertain future. Rising inequality, food security, and widespread disinvestment across Chicago’s West and South Sides have given our youth unique challenges that they must overcome in order to build great futures.

You can help our youth build great futures through your contributions to Union League Boys & Girls Clubs. Whether it be a one-time, recurring, or special gift, you have the power to help create positive outcomes and opportunities for our youth by providing their safe space and programming fostering academic, social and emotional, vocational, and health and wellness competencies. 

Please make your gift to Union League Boys & Girls Clubs today. You’ll join a growing family of loyal supporters who have made their commitment to Chicago’s young people, ensuring we are preparing the next generation of leaders. Thank you for your support.

For any questions about making your gift to Union League Boys & Girls Clubs, contact development@ulbgc.org or 312-583-9924 today.
