Our world is facing an unprecedented challenge. Like you, Chicago Children’s Choir is working hard to face this time with grace and ingenuity. CCC was founded to unify people during a time of strife, and it is this founding philosophy that informs our effort now.

For over 60 years, CCC has inspired and changed countless lives through our choral programs. Today, CCC serves nearly 5,000 young people throughout Chicago, many of whom come from low-income households. This would not be possible without your support.

76% of CCC’s operating budget comes from fundraising, including individual donations, corporate contributions and grants.

4,000 of our 5,000 students pay $0 in tuition to participate in our programs, and every student receives some level of subsidy.

We are committed to continue to provide Chicago’s youth with opportunities to connect, learn, and engage throughout this uncertain time – when it’s needed most.

  • Help us sustain the 100% graduation rate among our high school program seniors.
  • Help us sustain opportunity for program subsidy for ALL CCC singers.
  • Help us sustain the stature of Chicago nationally and internationally, proving to the world that young people in Chicago are global ambassadors.
