The ROBERT R. MCCORMICK FOUNDATION, WGN-A/CHICAGO, WGN-TV and the CHICAGO TRIBUNE have partnered to raise funds for ILLINOIS TORNADO RELIEF, assisting those struggling in the aftermath of this devastating storm. The ILLINOIS TORNADO RELIEF EFFORT will support nonprofit agencies providing disaster relief and recovery efforts to those communities hit hardest by the tornado.
THE FOUNDATION will match the first $500,000 raised at 50 cents on the dollar. All administrative costs are paid by THE FOUNDATION AND PARTNERS, allowing 100% of all funds raised, plus the match, to be granted directly to nonprofit organizations helping those most affected by the storm. The first round of grants will distributed by the end of 2013.
