We Get Big Things Done

Civic Consulting Alliance is a nonprofit organization marshalling collaborative, pro bono investments to get big things done for Chicago.

Chicago has a long history of civic engagement, but too often, the direction of our city is shaped by traditional power structures. Civic Consulting Alliance is turning that model on its head to address Chicago’s greatest challenges. We engage diverse people and resources to generate solutions and create a more prosperous, equitable city. We achieve impact in three key platforms – building safer communities, elevating our education system, and growing an economy that works for everyone.

Our experienced staff, best-in-class pro bono partners, and deep public and private sector relationships allow us to solve old problems in new ways. We pinpoint the root causes of complex issues. We convene institutional leaders and focus at a systems-level to create real impact that benefits the entire region. 

We’re committed to working across sectors and ensuring a seat at the table for all stakeholders, with the goal of creating a more inclusive civic culture and inspiring the next generation of leaders.

Our model is unique.
