INVEST Chicago is an initiative managed by Goodcity working to mobilize individuals to give their time, talents, and finances towards a portfolio of social entrepreneurs and non-profits making a difference in the city.

INVEST Chicago customizes giving. Chicagoans invest their time, talents and/or finances toward a portfolio of vetted social entrepreneurs and non-profits working to solve complex problems in their own communities.

INVEST Chicago is human centric. We support organizations with strong leadership, which we believe is vital to the short and long-term stability of an organization or enterprise.

INVEST Chicago is urban focused. We collaborate with our government, foundations and corporate partners to co-invest in projects that support under-served and under-resourced communities throughout Chicago.

INVEST Chicago is innovative. We provide philanthropic grants to non-profits and social enterprises and offer impact investment opportunities to individuals and enterprises who want to support ideas that are strategic, sustainable and unique.

INVEST Chicago is partnership driven. We partner with leading Chicago brands and corporations to provide “Thank you” benefits to those who invest in us.
