Cook County is kicking off the 2021 Charitable Giving Campaign for our workforce. This giving opportunity allows our employees to choose among fourcharities that are making a real difference in our community. 

Giving is easy and convenient. Employees can pledge a financial donation to one or more organizations through an automatic payroll deduction or one-time donation. You can learn more about each of the organizations we have partnered with for this year’s campaign by clicking on their logos below.
