Donation Requests

Donations are an essential part of the Chicago Fire's community outreach efforts and provide the team the opportunity to generate positive impact throughout the Chicagoland area. Giving back allows the Fire to support a great number of organizations, which in turn help those in need. We are happy to support various organizations' fundraising endeavors through the donation of Fire memorabilia and merchandise. The following request policy has been developed as a way to create consistency and fairness to the organizations that ask for the
Chicago Fire's support.
