The Sierra Club, Illinois Chapter works hard to promote renewable energy solutions, ensure a clean, safe water supply, and protect our natural, open spaces. Please join with other Sierra Club members who are committed to our work and make a donation today. There are many different ways to show your support.


Make a one-time gift or become a sustaining donor to the Illinois Chapter

Your gift, 100% of which will stay here in Illinois, helps support our volunteers and staff that are tackling the challenges of global warming with solutions, protecting our wetlands, prairies and forests from development and protecting Lake Michigan and our rivers from pollution. Because we lobby effectively for better environmental laws, general contributions to Sierra Club are not tax-deductible.


Make a tax-deductible gift to the Sierra Club Foundation

Support the Illinois Chapterís conservation work, which includes preventing Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes, combating global climate change, reducing pollution in our air and waterways, and protecting open spaces here in Illinois, by making a gift to the Sierra Club Foundation. Your contribution is tax-deductible.


Make a gift to the Sierra Club IL PAC

Your contribution will be used to elect pro-environment candidates that reflect Sierra Clubís commitment to clean air, clean water, preserving our unique places and challenging climate disruption. Because your contribution will be used to help elect pro-environment candidates, gifts made to the PAC are not tax-deductible.
