World Chicago receives about 60% of our funding through U.S. Department of State program grants and contracts. The remaining 40% is achieved through individual donations, special events, membership, and sponsorships. Your unrestricted gift helps us close this funding gap and create even more opportunities to bring the world to Chicago, and Chicago to the world.
