The Foundation also supports organizations that share this vision so as to further extend the investment needed to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our children. In 2010, the Fire Foundation raised over $70,000 at the club’s annual luncheon.

Entering its 13th year, the Chicago Fire Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps the Chicago Fire contribute to the community through grants and contributions. With great pride, the foundation reached its one-million-dollar grant donation benchmark in 2006. This outstanding achievement gives the Chicago Fire Foundation even more reason to set its sights on grander projects for the future.



The Chicago Fire’s goal on the field is to play hard and win. Its goal off the field is to contribute to the quality of life in Chicago and its surrounding communities. Through the Chicago Fire Foundation, the Fire is able to give back to the community by developing programs that reach out to Chicagoland’s community. Since 1998, the Chicago Fire Foundation, the charitable arm of the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer Team, has made significant contributions to enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth throughout Chicagoland. To date, the Foundation has donated more than $1.4 million dollars in grants and contributions. The Chicago Fire Foundation raises funds through events such as the annual Season Kickoff Luncheon, the Commemorative Jersey Auction, and 50/50 Raffle.
