In 2018, 2,900 people were shot and 575 were killed in Chicago—fewer than the previous two years, but a tragic and unacceptable level of violence that destroys lives and harms communities.

Community leaders, police and civic partners are working together to bring about safer, more peaceful communities.

Who we are

The Partnership for Safe and Peaceful Communities is a coalition of more than 40 Chicago funders and foundations committed to aligning their funding to support proven and promising urgent responses to reducing violence in the next two to three years.

Everyone who cares deeply about Chicago’s future can play a role.

If you are an employer, you can hire young people at risk. If you are a community leader, you can help improve police-community relations. If you are a health care provider, you can support trauma-informed care to gun violence victims. If you are a funder, you can support any one of these efforts. Whatever you do, your voice matters when you speak up in support of policies that can make our neighborhoods safer. Reach out to learn more.
