Your Gift Matters

Cornerstone Society

There aren't the right words to describe what Covenant House Illinois means to me and other youth in my position. They tell you what you need to lift you up and give you the lessons you need to move on.

Meet Our Youth

Welcome to Covenant House Illinois' New Campus

An estimated 3,000 young people experience homelessness on any given night in Chicago. Through the Campaign for Youth Potential, Covenant House Illinois will provide shelter, programming, and tailored services to more youth in crisis than ever before - supporting and guiding young people as they establish independence and permanently break the cycle of homelessness.

In 2020, CHIL embarked on an ambitious $11.5 million capital campaign to renovate our 24,000 square foot facility and meet the growing needs of youth experiencing homelessness.

Appreciated assets such as stocks and bonds are a great way to give. Selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.
