Like many in our Community, Chicago KICS Foundation has been dramatically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We stand together with all of you as we work to support each other during this time. All spring programs (serving over 2,000+ families) including Soccer for Success, Toddlers, Chicago Community League, Chicago Private League and Italy Cultural Exchange Tournament have been canceled. Spring Season is our busiest season and provides critical funding for the Chicago KICS Foundation's annual budget. The loss in funding puts us in jeopardy to be able to support our staff and allow us to be prepared to resume Summer and Fall Programs so that our players don't lose the opportunity to participate in valuable programming.
As of March 13th, essential KICS Foundation administrative staff have had their hours reduced and all non-essential KICS Foundation staff have been furloughed until programming resumes. We are now facing the possibilty that summer programming may also be cancelled. In order for our organization to stay afloat we need all the support we can get. This is about ensuring that young people have access to sports in a safe environment and receive the physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits organized sports provides. Your donation will go a long way by making it possible for Chicago KICS Foundation to continue to bring high quality youth soccer programming to our community. Whether is it $10, $20, $50, $100 or more – your donation matters. Thank you for your support!
