Fundraising for Charities

Dedicated Board of Directors and Volunteers

The Geneva Community Chest Board of Directors consists of Geneva community and business leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to raise funds for various charitable organizations in our community.

Supporting Charitable Organizations

What We Do

The Geneva Community Chest sponsors a number of events throughout the year to raise funds to help the charitable organizations we support.

We receive requests for funding from worthy, local non-profit charitable social service organizations that provide aid and assistance to people in need. Our dedicated Board of Directors annually then allocates funds to the deserving charities. Obviously, the more resources we have available to us, the more we can support these incredible organizations that are doing such important work in our community.

Because we operate entirely with volunteers and have no staff, office building, rent and related costs, virtually all of the funds we raise go directly to the charities we believe need it the most. This is much different than other charities that have significant administrative costs.

Since its inception, the Geneva Community Chest has continued to remain an independent, community-based organization and not become a part of or affiliate with any national fundraising organization. As such, no funds are diverted to meet stringent funding and staffing requirements imposed by national fundraising organizations. Consequently, one donation goes a lot further to help those who need it right here in our community.

We appreciate your support of the Geneva Community Chest. Thanks for Caring for Our Community!

Volunteering for events and supporting the charities in our community feels great!
