Support Our Work

Redeveloping Chicago’s north side communities for the benefit of and control by the low and moderate-income families in these areas is Bickerdike’s highest priority.


We would not be able to achieve any of our goals without the support of our donors. We are enormously grateful for our supporters, as every one of you allows us to serve more people and continue to deliver effective and transformative programs.


Here’s how your investment helps us do this work. Your support works in tangible ways.


Every dollar we raise :

  • Buys a new building to rent at affordable rates
  • Assists already struggling families
  • Renovates the home of an elderly resident
  • Houses Chicago families and strengthens communities
  • Keeps hard-working people in our communities


We welcome you to learn more about our mission and work, and thank you for joining us in this vital work.
