About

At Chicks for Charity, we CELEBRATE doing something simple and fun with family, friends, or co-workers to raise a few dollars to support under-the-radar charities in northwest Ohio. We provide girls and women of all ages with the inspiration and opportunity to participate in giving back, maximize impact, and experience the JOY and DIGNITY of being philanthropic.

It’s not about how much you give. It’s the idea that you want to help. And together, when we combine our efforts, we can create change and make our community better.

Membership is free to anyone who wants to have fun … do good … and give back. We just ask each Chick to raise a few dollars for our charity … however, you want … whenever you want.

As a member of CFC, once a year, each Chick is asked to commit to doing something fun with family, friends, or co-workers to raise money. Those dollars, whether it’s $11.38 from a Junior Chick’s lemonade stand or $2500 from a well-planned neighborhood basketball tournament, will be awarded to our designated charity.

Chicks …
Keeping it easy.
Keeping it fun.
Raising a few dollars.
Helping others.

The idea for Chicks for Charity
Making a difference for a small nonprofit by having fun, with few meetings, few rules … and lots of laughs, was the result of a brainstorming session at a marketing firm in 2006. It was a young, 20-something art director who said, “I’d like to help. But, no one ever asks me to give.”

From that statement, the idea for Chicks for Charity blossomed. The group began reaching out to family and friends. We found fun and innovative ways to raise a few dollars for a local nonprofit. Over the years, more than 1,900 women and girls, lovingly known as Chicks and Junior Chicks, conducted small fundraising events – wine tasting, game night, lemonade stands, ice skating parties, etc. – and donated the money to a designated local nonprofit. 

From 2006-2016, we raised more than $1 million in cash, goods, services and media placements. Chicks for Charity went quiet when the company that founded CFC was sold. However, in 2024, we are becoming a 501(c)(3) with the goal to continue our mission.

Supporting under-the-radar charities
Every few years, Chicks will vote on a small, under-the-radar nonprofit to support through our fundraising activities.

We celebrate all of our successes at our Chick Mix Garden Party. Profits from the Chick Mix and the sale of CFC merchandise go to our designated charity.
