The Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation is a proud member of the Chicago community and was established to fulfill its mission to provide opportunities and resources to children or their families who are in need.

The Cornerstone Foundation has a limited amount of donations it can provide to a wide variety of charitable/community organizations that wish to make us a part of their event.

The following procedures and guidelines will help for your request to be processed in a more efficient manner.


Requests must be submitted in writing at least eight (8) weeks prior to the actual event. No telephone requests will be processed. Written donation requests must be submitted on official letterhead including:
  • Organization’s name, address, and non-profit tax ID number
  • Contact name, mailing address, and phone number
  • Event Information (type, date, time, location, etc.)
  • Group benefiting from funds raised
  • Please include a self addressed, stamped envelope
  • Donations will be mailed out once decision is made.
Because of the large volume of requests, the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation will only assist organizations once per calendar year. While we make every effort to support all organizations in need that align with the Foundation’s mission, the Cornerstone Foundation is limited in the number of donations that we can distribute. Therefore, the Cornerstone Foundation will prioritize donation requests based on date submitted, need and location, and will respond to the request two weeks prior to the event. The Cornerstone Foundation gives first priority for donations to organizations that also support us.

Please mail requests eight (8) weeks in advance to: 
Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation
939 W North Ave.
Suite 750
Chicago, IL 60642
