Build A Legacy
You can include a gift in your will to CCH and create a legacy advocating for public policies that curb and can ultimately end homelessness. Our partnership with FreeWill: a free estate planning resource enables you to write your will and make a legacy gift in 20 minutes.
You can also speak with your attorney to set up a bequest. They can help you include Chicago Coalition for the Homeless in your estate plan. Below is some basic bequest language to assist you and your attorney:
I hereby give, devise and bequeath [percentage] to Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, a nonprofit organization located at 70 E. Lake Street, Suite 720, Chicago, IL 60601, Federal Tax ID #36-3292607, for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless’ general use and purpose.
Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? These are called non-probate assets, and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. You can use FreeWill to name Chicago Coalition for the Homeless as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets to build a legacy with us.
CCH has a limited capacity to accept in-kind donations (food, clothing, care packages, etc.). We recommend getting in touch with GiveNKind. They connect goods with nonprofits to benefit our community and our environment.
Furniture and household goods donations can be directed to the Chicago Furniture Bank. They distribute donations to families and individuals transitioning into supportive housing.
Due to the nature of our work, we have very limited opportunities for in-person volunteering. Our Associate Board welcomes young professionals dedicated to making a difference in their community. Members plan and run special events and fundraisers, raise awareness, and support our advocacy efforts when possible. Complete this interest form to learn more.
If you have any donation questions, please contact Michael Nameche at email@example.com or 773.906.3571.
