HPCF’s partners are experiencing a surge in demand for services from Highland Park and Highwood residents significantly impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak.
It is critical that these organizations have the resources they need to continue to operate at the highest capacity. Your donation will support these agencies and ensure that our neighbors can access basic needs in this unprecedented time of uncertainty.
As we take steps to protect our own families, workplaces, and neighborhoods from the effects of the virus, let’s not forget the impact this will have on our neighbors. Missing paychecks, the inability to pay rent, and a lack of access to food and essential supplies are realities that many residents will face in the coming weeks.
Please join us in supporting our neighbors.
Donations made in support of the HPCF COVID-19 Emergency Response Appeal will be used to fund requests the HPCF has already received and will continue to receive from our grant recipients and other agencies that serve Highland Park and Highwood residents.
100% of all donations will go directly to support services and supplies for those in need, with the exception of a small credit card processing fee that online donors may choose to cover.
Donations can also be mailed to P.O. Box 398, Highland Park, IL 60035

It also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize. Click here to read more.
