We are thrilled to share, as God would have it, we have been given a building!

We are enormously grateful to those who contributed to our capital campaign and those that committed a financial pledge toward future construction. It is because of this amazing support that C24/7 can look ahead to a bright future of spreading hope. We still plan to build on part of our empty lot and hope to have those plans for you soon. In the meantime, we are delighted to share more about our building that will serve as a pivotal home for expanding our mission in Rogers Park and growing C24/7’s impact.

We are deeply grateful to Starfish Learning Center, an After-school Program that decided to discontinue operations in 2023 and give their building to C24/7. This gift has opened doors to expanded opportunities, increased impact, and stronger community engagement. The building, located at 1543 W Howard Street, provides a versatile space to support our growing programs.

C24/7 has grown quickly. From our grassroots origins, we now stand at a crossroads of great need and even greater opportunity.

Our programs have wait-lists because we do not have the space to admit more children and job-seekers. Our neighborhood has as many struggles as it has ever had. Our constituents have taken the first steps toward empowerment, but need much more support.

Our belief in a God of parent-like love compels us to take the next step as an organization and more fully reach, serve, and empower the North of Howard community of Rogers Park.

Building a new home will allow us to do exactly that. The opportunity exists for profound, long-lasting improvement in the structures, systems, and people of our community. We believe by increasing our space, presence in the community, and collaboration with partners through the purchase of a new building we can help bring the improvement our community is desperately looking for.

We Make No Small Plans

“C24/7 understands the ins and outs of navigating gang violence, and often are the first to know of traumatic and urgent crises our neighbors face.”

Maria E. Hadden, Alderwoman, 49th Ward

Gifts of Appreciated Assets

Donors can simply transfer assets such as stock, land, or other property to C24/7, which avoids capital gains tax and offers an income tax charitable deduction.

Qualified charitable distribution

A great option for any donor aged 70 1/2 or older. Distributing money from a qualified retirement account directly to C24/7 avoids the taxations typically associated with distributions, while also leaving a gift to a great cause!

Donor Advised Funds & Family Foundations

If you or someone you know already have a Charitable Giving Fund and/or Family Foundation set up, you can choose C24/7 as a recipient of funds. Typically this is as easy as providing our EIN number: 81-3116501.
