In this month’s Donor Spotlight, Thresholds is featuring the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, a long-time supporter and partner of the agency.

The McCormick Foundation’s philanthropic mission is to foster communities of educated, informed, and engaged citizens.Through its generous support, the foundation continues the legacy of Col. Robert R. McCormick to improve the lives of people in the Chicagoland. With more than $1.5B in assets, it provides support through philanthropic grant making and oversees Cantigny Park, a thriving center for recreation and community service.

The McCormick Foundation has supported Thresholds for more than 40 years, playing an important role in helping the agency expand its services to different populations living with mental illness. This year the foundation extended its support to the Thresholds Westside Narcotics Diversion and Treatment Initiative. This program works with the Chicago Police Department to divert nonviolent drug offenders from incarceration by providing them immediate care. This includes life-saving medication-assisted treatment, psychiatry, treatment planning, and other services. The McCormick Foundation’s support is enabling the initiative to reach more clients and become sustainable.

We are deeply grateful for The McCormick Foundation’s enduring support of Thresholds and for believing in the work we do!
