Other Ways to Give
Create a lasting, positive legacy by giving a tribute gift dedicated to someone or marking a special occasion. Chicago Lights acknowledges these gifts by sending an appropriate note to the family or honoree. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned, and a separate receipt will be sent to you. During the holiday season, your tribute gifts become part of the Light Up a Life giving program. Please contact Resource Development at email@example.com.
Matching gifts are a great way to double or triple your gift—making an even greater impact. Many companies match employees’, retirees’, and employees’ spouses’ donations. You may submit the form with your gift or any time during the tax year in which your gift was given.
