Community members like you make Streeterville the vibrant, world-class neighborhood that it is. Our members, our volunteers, our government officials, and our stakeholders are the heart and soul of our Streeterville community. Together, we have accomplished much, but the work is not done. Year after year, SOAR strives to create the Streeterville that the community members envision and the only way we can continue to do so is with your continued support. We are true to our mission statement with every penny we spend going to “preserving, promoting, and enhancing the quality of life and community.”  

We have advocated on community issues that affect your safety and wellbeing by working with our local government officials. We have maintained the community gardens at Lake Shore Park, we have published weekly community updates via SOAR eNews, we produced and managed the Farmers Market at the MCA Plaza, we have enhanced our social media presence, hosted informational forums and Town Hall meetings, social events and more. All of our activities rely on donations from members like you. Your donation not only strengthens the neighborhood, it helps to build and celebrate our wonderful community. As you reflect on your year, please take a moment to remember what SOAR has done for you.

As our days get shorter and nights get longer, we support efforts to keep our neighborhood one of the safest neighborhoods in the city of Chicago and to make it even safer. 

As the leaves start to turn a golden hew and the soil begins to freeze over, we reminisce on the beautiful gardens planted by the SOAR Garden Club, and graciously paid for with donations from dedicated members like you. 

As the holidays draw closer, Michigan Avenue fills with residents, workers, shoppers and tourists. We thank those whose efforts have tried to help make Streeterville a quieter but still vibrant neighborhood. There is still work to be done.

With 2017 coming to a close, to say we had a good year would be an understatement. All of these efforts and more were made possible by the support and participation of members of the community like you, and this year, the level of involvement and enthusiasm we received from our members has made SOAR truly soar to new heights. Your contributions will help strengthen the Streeterville community for years to come. 

We gratefully ask for your continued financial support by contributing to our Annual Appeal. SOAR is a 501(c)3 and as a result has limited sources of income. We rely on donations from our Annual Appeal to continue our community efforts.  Your donation is tax deductible to the extent of the law. We thank you for your unwavering support.
