COVID-19 has raised much uncertainty in our lives. But together, we are working through the pandemic and finding ways to adjust while continuing to be careful and protective of our most vulnerable neighbors and friends.

However, it is important to remember that even before the pandemic, there were many people in need, and those needs are still present. Thankfully, Park Ridge is blessed to be connected to an extensive network of mission-based nonprofit organizations that provide vital services to those who need them. These organizations rely on your continued support, even and especially now.

To encourage our residents and businesses to continue their support for local nonprofit organizations, the City has launched this landing page as a first stop in learning about organizations' missions and how to donate. See the list below for organization names and useful links. This list will grow as representatives of various nonprofit organizations add themselves. Don't see your organization? Complete the form.

Under the new federal coronavirus relief legislation (CARES Act), taxpayers will be able to deduct an additional $300 for charitable giving on top of the standard deduction on the 2020 federal income tax return. We encourage you to consider using that $300 allowance to support the great and needed work going on in your community.
