End-of-the-Year Giving Guide

Your end-of-the-year giving to nonprofit organizations plays a vital role in their ability to touch more lives and create more opportunities for those in need. When you give to a nonprofit like SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, you’re providing opportunities that might not otherwise be there for the children in our care with your gifts of love, donations, and financial support. Over a quarter of nonprofits raise between 26-50% of their annual funds from end-of-the-year giving, making it a wonderful time to make a positive impact.

Consider SOS Illinois for Your End-of-the-Year Giving

This year, consider SOS Illinois for your end-of-the-year giving efforts. Our children greatly benefit not only now but long into their bright futures thanks in part to our generous donors and the continued support they provide.

Currently, the gifts we are in greatest need of are:

  • Gifts to our Community Center
  • One-time and monthly donations (including Dream Makers)
  • In-kind donations to support children in permanency

For more information on how you can support end-of-the-year giving and assist with supporting areas of our greatest needs, please contact Amy Kaczmarek, Director of Development, at akaczmarek@sosillinois.org or Ange Bolton, Development Assistant, at abolton@sosillinois.org or call 312-372-8200.
