Asking for your continued support: Our Annual Appeal to Keep Streeterville SOARing

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 Spotlight, 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

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.

Direct Financial Contributions

SOAR makes every effort to maximize our resources. Membership dues, however, only provide a portion of SOAR’s annual income. Additional financial resources are needed to carry out our work on behalf of the Streeterville’s residential community.

Donations are gratefully accepted for specific purposes or for general use. SOAR is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations to SOAR are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
