Chicago Tribune Launches Community Givng Portal

The Chicago Tribune has launched a new Community Giving portal to encourage volunteering and philanthropy in the Chicago region. This page points to volunteer opportunities and includes the Tutor/Mentor Connection.

If people go to the T/MC site and use the Chicago Program Links or the Chicago Tutor/Mentor Program Locator they can shop from a list of nearly 200 volunteer-based tutor and/or mentor programs where they can get involved.

Or they can visit this page and help the T/MC build and maintain this resource.

If every company hosts a portal like this and includes the T/MC we can dramatically increase the number of volunteers and donors involved in tutor/mentor programs without increasing the advertising costs involved with finding these resources.
