We're dedicated to strengthening the communities we serve. Our commitment to bringing positive, lasting change to Chicagoland is demonstrated by donating our time, skills, knowledge, and money. We encourage our employees to participate in philanthropic causes as well, whether it be supporting one another within the LG family, or giving back in their own way to the causes they're passionate about. We also want the contributions to extend outside the doors of LG, which is why we started our Love to Give charity initiative. Here are a few of the charities we’re grateful to be a part of:
Camp Out For Kids
COFK was founded by LG Construction + Development and Core Partners to give underprivileged kids the opportunity to attend a summer camp in line with their interests. In their first summer in 2008, they were able to send 22 Chicagoland kids to camp. As of today, Camp Out for Kids has sent over 2,000 kids to summer camps around the country, for everything from outdoor adventure to computer programming.
The Pariah Foundation is a non-profit led by three mental health advocates, one of which is an LG exec, that strives to erase the stigma that plague those suffering from mental illness by promoting awareness, encouraging education and raising money to fund causes that assist and improve the lives of those struggling with mental illness. One of these initiatives is Project Compass, a charity that donates vans to Cook County that will transport mentally ill patients to and from court hearings, parole meetings and government mandated health care sessions.
The Herban Produce is a non-profit urban farm spearheaded by LG Construction + Development and EdgeAlliance, a North Lawndale housing-focused non-profit. The farm provides year-round fresh produce to the Garfield Park and North Lawndale communities, along with nutritional education, employment opportunities, and hands-on experience in various aspects of self-sustaining, social enterprise.
Jackson Chance Foundation
Jackson Chance Foundation works directly with hospitals to provide parking passes for each and every family with a baby in the NICU, regardless of need. Currently, their program is available at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago with the goal of adding Northwestern Prentice Women’s Hospital in the near future.
