The USO of Illinois' mission is to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
The Illinois of USO is proud to be hosting a Kentucky Derby event in Chicago on May 5th. The organization supports 323,000 active duty, national guardsman and reservists throughout IL on an annual basis.
Proceeds from the event benefit USO of Illinois Programs and Services. Open since 1941, the USO OF Illinois is a private, civilian 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that receives no direct government funding, and relies solely on the generosity of the American people.
