When you partner with Center on Halsted, you are partnering with one of Chicago's leading and most respected non-profit organizations. Named one of Chicago’s top 20 non-profits by Chicago Magazine, we are the Midwest's most comprehensive community center dedicated to building and strengthening the LGBTQ Community. More than 1,400 community members come through our doors every day, providing you a built-in audience for targeted brand visibility. Furthermore, you will have a unique opportunity to show your company's commitment to the LGBTQ Community through numerous volunteer, engagement, and placement opportunities.

Research shows that an association with leading non-profit organizations like Center on Halsted makes good business sense. A Cone Corporate Citizenship study has shown that 9 out of 10 global consumers are likely to switch bands to one that supports a good cause. The study says that corporate responsibility is “no longer a nice-to-do [but] a reputational imperative[…]. Companies are expected to be an active participant – if not a driving force – in solving the most pressing social and environmental issues. Corporations that disregard this consumer-demanded role risk more than their reputation – nine-in-10 global citizens say they would boycott if they learned of irresponsible behavior.” At Center on Halsted we are excited to begin our relationship with you!
