Any nonprofit organization (NPO) interested in receiving funding consideration for the very first time from either the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation or the Chicago Blackhawks Community Fund, a McCormick Foundation fund, is required to submit a completed LOI.
Those seeking funding from Chicago Blackhawks Foundation under the focus of Health and Wellness can submit an LOI on this page, and those interested in Education can submit through the Chicago Blackhawks Community Fund, a fund of the McCormick Foundation.
To receive funding consideration, an NPO must operate a program that fits the funding guidelines for either fund and must be in stable financial health. Before submitting an LOI, review the funding guidelines of both the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation (below) and the McCormick Foundation.
The Chicago Blackhawks Foundation will begin accepting letters of inquiry from interested nonprofit organizations in the Chicagoland area starting January 2, 2019. Letters of inquiry will be accepted through January 31, 2019.
The LOI must include the following:
