How You Can Help > Make a Gift
You might not see it, but the need surrounds us. A child who wants to play sports, but can’t afford to join the team. A family in crisis who needs support. A teen who feels isolated by the obstacles presented by Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are the place they turn to. Help us continue to build community through our critical programs and services by donating today.
If you prefer, checks can be made payable to The Community House and mailed or dropped off at:
415 West Eighth Street
Hinsdale, Illinois 60521
Many employers will match the gifts of employees, retirees and members of the corporate board when their gifts are made to nonprofit organizations, such as The Community House. The amount of your personal gift can be doubled, or even tripled, at no additional cost to you, if your company has a Matching Gift Program. Please contact your company’s community affairs or human resources department to see if a matching gift plan is available and if The Community House is eligible.
Jordan Crist Scholarship Fund
The Community House believes an individual’s economic situation should not be a barrier to participation in our recreational activities. Created in 2007, in honor of Jordan Crist’s kind and generous spirit, the Jordan Crist Scholarship Fund provides financial scholarships for those who are unable to afford the fees charged for programs at The Community House. The generous support of Jordan’s family and friends, united with individual donations from the community, have provided scholarships for more than 50 children and adults to participate in programs offered at The Community House.
If you are interested in supporting one of our services or programs specifically, please contact Dan Janowick at 630-323-7500 Ext. 222, to discuss how you as an individual, foundation or business can partner to improve the communities we serve.
