Cook County Historical Society

A nonprofit organization

$4,726 raised by 19 donors

Interior of Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church, known locally as the Chippewa City ChurchThe Cook County Historical Society is charged with maintaining and sharing the history of the community, including buildings like the Chippewa City Church (pictured in the banner above). This important asset has stood for well over 100 years, but it needs your help to make it for the next 100 years!

Some areas of the church, such as the portion surrounding the altar, have suffered damage over time, and need fortification and restoration. Flooring around the altar area and other structural issues need your support to keep this critical part of our story open and available for years to come. 

This year, an anonymous donor has made a $10,000 matching gift which allows us to triple the value of your gift! If you give $100, it becomes $300 to help keep the Church open for the public. The more you give, the more it is worth to the history of Cook County!

Make your gift today, and remember to share on social media, drop an email to a friend, or of course, call someone and share your story. It helps us all build community together.

Thank you for your support!
