Partnership Focus

Since 2003, more than $25 million has been granted through the Cubs Charities Community Fund (formerly known as Cubs Care), making a positive impact in the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children and families every year.

The Cubs Charities Community Fund supports education in 3rd grade reading proficiency, middle-to-high school transition, and access to and persistence in post-secondary education. The fund also supports health & wellness in community health centers, school-based health centers, and childhood obesity prevention & treatment.

McCormick Match

The McCormick Foundation matches funds raised at 50 cents on the dollar. We pay all campaign and administrative expenses, so one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations.
