The Robert R. McCormick Foundation is committed to fostering communities of educated, informed and engaged citizens. Through philanthropic programs, Cantigny Park and museums, the Foundation helps develop citizen leaders and works to make life better in our communities. The Foundation was established as a charitable trust in 1955, upon the death of Colonel Robert R. McCormick, the longtime editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune. The Robert R. McCormick Foundation is a Chicago-based grant-making foundation, with more than $1 billion in assets.
To help Veterans identify their full potential, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation Veterans Program is investing in employment programs creating career pipelines integrated supportive services for Veterans, behavioral health programs addressing gaps in service, and opportunities to facilitate the collaboration of existing Veteran support services and resources.
