About Us

The Polk Bros. Foundation was established by members of the Polk family who owned and operated the Polk Bros. chain of retail stores. The primary focus of the Foundation is programs that work with populations of need--particularly children-- in underserved Chicago communities. Very few awards are made to communities outside the city of Chicago. Grants are made for both new and ongoing initiatives in four program areas: social service, education, culture, and health care. In all areas, propsals should address increased access to services and improvement of the quality of life for area residents.
