World Chicago receives about 60% of our funding through U.S. Department of State program grants and contracts. The remaining 40% is achieved through special events, membership, in-kind donations, and sponsorships.

Your continued support helps us close this funding gap and create even more opportunities to bring the world to Chicago, and Chicago to the world.
