…and Chicago area businesses, corporations and individuals are responding to partner with us in presenting the 2018 Chi-Town Jazz Festival. Music clubs, concert halls and musicians in the jazz community as well as our organizing, creative and fundraising committees have come together to donate their venues, time and talents. Over 90% of proceeds goes directly to Care For Real, Top Box Foods, and Catholic Charities who work toward hunger relief. Won’t YOU help us this year too?


Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! To find out if your company will match gifts to the Chi-Town Jazz Fest/ Archdiocese of Chicago, Top Box Foods, or Care For Real, please check with your employer. Donations can be made directly to either organization. For more information email us, .
