Give at Work

Rally your co-workers to help CAC children and families by hosting a workplace fundraiser. Fundraisers can be tailored to your organization. Please contact Ali Boggio-Hair to set up your fundraiser. CAC is happy to assist with the planning. Popular fundraisers include:

  • For a donation, employees can dress casual and wear jeans, jerseys, etc. 
  • Start a football or basketball pool.
  • Host a tasty fundraiser such as a bake sale, coffee stand or pancake breakfast.
  • Play like a child and host a sports tournament, fitness challenge or Olympics. 
  • Attend and fundraise for a CAC event such as our annual 5K Champions for Children Walk!

Employer Match
Your company could double your support to help end child abuse. Speak with your company and see if they have a matching gifts program. If they do, CAC will provide the proper paper work to ensure all of your donations are matched by your employer!

Become a Corporate Partner

By partnering with CAC, your company or organization will be associated with one of the best charities in Chicagoland, and you’ll give CAC more opportunities to raise the money needed to fund CAC's life changing programs.

Include CAC in Your Will

  • A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for CAC's future
  • You retain control and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change
  • Gifts from your estate may be exempt from federal estate taxes
