AT NO COST TO YOU, GET FUNDING FOR Reason to Give WHEN YOU: Buy a Home / Sell a Home / Lease Commercial Property

Reason to Give

The Firebelly Foundation was founded in January of 2007 and six months later launched its first pilot program Reason To Give, an innovative web store where shoppers can directly purchase the basic needs of Chicago's Humboldt Park community. Reason To Give provides low-income families, schools, and small organizations in Chicago's Humboldt Park community with basic necessities purchased from responsible retailers. Reason To Give's innovative online storefront makes donating simple and direct. Through the website, potential donors can view video interviews of participants explaining their situations and needs, donate towards those needs from a list of basic items, and then check back to watch a follow up video success story. Participants in the Reason to Give program also attend expert facilitated life skills workshops that focus on a range of topics from resume writing and financial planning to starting a home-based business and computer training.
