Chicago Jets Summer Challenge 2018

Jets Summer Challenge is back!  

In 2018, the Chicago Jets Hockey Club has once again received a very generous challenge grant from an anonymous donor, this year for $30,000!  Our donor offered to match dollar-for-dollar all donations to the Chicago Jets organization between June 25th and August 5th 2018.  This year, the funds raised through the summer challenge will be targeted primarily toward our supporting our families demonstrating need with financial assistance program.  Last year we disbursed a record amount of financial aid to a record number of families and we want to be able to continue that support for this year.  Our generous donor has provided the $30,000 match for this season in an effort to allow our Chicago Jets community to double their impact with each donation received.  Don't forget, we can TRIPLE the impact of each donation if your company offers matching contributions for your donations so please take a minute and check into it!  A surprising number of companies will match this and last year it was an important part of us hitting our goal.  See further details below.
