Children in foster care at SOS Illinois wouldn’t be able to heal and thrive the way they do without the wonderful support of our partners and those who give to our cause. We are committed to helping children grow into caring, productive, and self-reliant adults, and there are many ways we work to achieve this. If you have considered donating to a charity that helps at-risk youth and children in foster care, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois offers four ways you can truly create a lasting impact with your support for children and families in need in the Chicagoland area.
Give to Children in Foster Care through Commemorating Love
Commemorating your love through a memorial tribute gift is a beautiful way to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, or any special occasion. These gifts can also serve as a special way to honor the memory of a friend or relative.
When you give to children in foster care at SOS Illinois through a memorial tribute, we acknowledge your gift and notify the honoree or appropriate persons that a tribute donation was made. The amount of your gift is always kept confidential.
Give Through Remembering Our Cause
When you include SOS Children’s Villages Illinois in your estate plans, you are able to drive incredible change for youth in foster care for many years to come. By utilizing real estate such as your home, farm, or commercial property to fund your giving, you are able to preserve your cash assets, as well as receive significant tax advantages.
Donations of personal property are also welcome and appreciated. Items such as computer equipment, works of art, rare books, or other collections may be donated. Please contact us to discuss any potential personal property gifts you’d like to donate.
Give to Youth in Foster Care through Breaking New Ground
Our Roosevelt Square Community Centerhas officially broken ground, and we are excited for the ways it will help and enhance the lives of over 5,000 families in the community and beyond. By giving to the Community Center Project, you will help create a valuable resource where children and adults of all ages can gather, learn, and strengthen the greater Chicagoland community.
Give through Empowering a Dream
Our Dream Makers program at SOS Children’s Villages Illinois is the easiest way to donate in order to help our mission for children in foster care and at-risk families. By providing an automatic, monthly gift, you allow us the ability to provide the sustained resources needed to help the children in our care.
As a Dream Maker, your impact through giving will create educational development, health and wellness, and cultural enrichment for youth in foster care. Our graduation rates are proudly held at 100%.Thanks to our Dream Makers, we’re able to provide our comprehensive College Bound and Beyond program and other educational services for those in our care.
