The Chicago Children’s Charities (CCC) board is managed by a group of young professionals who are dedicated to carrying on the organization’s proud tradition.  

For over 30 years, CCC board members have donated their time and energy by participating in monthly meetings, planning events, soliciting donations, running committees and, of course, having some fun too. We’re always looking for enthusiastic professionals to join our organization. If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a member, please contact us.
