Make A Difference

The Make A Difference page is dedicated to helping people in the Chicagoland area find great organizations, events and volunteers committed to civic engagement. Our goal is simple – to help everyone find a great place to volunteer and rely on the generosity of people like you to help transform people’s passion into action. Take a few minutes, look around and know that donating a little time can mean a lot! If you have an opportunity or event you would like to see posted, submit it here.
