Legacy Guild

We hope you will consider joining CCHE’s Legacy Guild by including CCHE in your estate plan. Your legacy gift will help CCHE continue to transform the lives of individuals and secure the future well-being of our Cook County community. We look forward to discussing with you whether you wish to contribute to CCHE’s future by directing that your gift be added to our endowment fund, our Board-designated fund, or our scholarship fund.

Why this is a great time to include CCHE in your estate plan:

The CCHE Board of Directors has pledged $500,000 to start our legacy gift campaign. The goal is for CCHE to generate a dollar-for-dollar match, culminating in total pledges of $1,000,000. The Board’s extraordinary commitment to CCHE demonstrates how important CCHE has been and can be to enrich the lives of residents of Cook County.

We are happy to work with you and your professional advisors about designating CCHE as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance policy, deferred compensation plan, or any other type of estate planning instrument. Please contact our Executive Director, Karen Blackburn for further information.

As a business we support Higher Education. Personally I have taken a variety of classes through the years. We were most appreciative of the CNA classes, which my daughter was able to take & get locally certified.

EDUCATION WHERE YOU LIVE

CCHE acknowledges that we are located on traditional, ancestral, and modern-day lands of Indigenous people. These lands were stolen by white settlers who forcibly pushed out Indigenous people. Despite attempts at erasure, the Ojibwe nation, and before them the Dakota and the Cree nations – and other Indigenous peoples from time immemorial – have persisted. We recognize that this Land Acknowledgement is but one step in unmasking systems of oppression. To read the full statement and learn more about our commitment to this work click here.
