Giving Tuesday: Please help us meet a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $50,000

Dec. 4 UPDATE:

With thanks to 391 generous donors, CCH exceeded its match challenge, with gifts totaling $60,184. 

Many thanks to all!

We invite you to be a part of our #GivingTuesday effort this year!

We are grateful that this Giving Tuesday, December 3, all donations to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000 total. This match is made possible by a generous challenge grant from an anonymous donor family.

Now in its 8th year, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving backed by the power of social media.

Your support with a tax-deductible gift of any size will help us reach critical fundraising goals – supporting vital work to prevent and end the homelessness that impacts thousands of Chicago area families, youth and adults.

Supporters are asked to share our #GivingTuesday message on social media — or consider joining those who are helping us as “Giving Tuesday Ambassadors.”

Sign up by going to and clicking the “Create my own fundraising page” link. You will be sent an email with a link to edit your goal, photo, and bio. Then you’re all set to share your link with friends and family on Giving Tuesday.

CCH is the only non-profit in Illinois solely focused on advocacy for and with people experiencing homelessness.  Rated a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator, CCH is among 77 U.S. organizations on Charity Navigator’s “Perfect 100” list for their scores on financial health and accountability.

CCH also holds top rankings from Guidestar and is a 2019 Great Nonprofit, based on online endorsements from volunteers and donors.
