The lifeblood of most non-profits does not come from the government or charitable foundations; it comes from ordinary people like you - spending your time and money helping the organizations that reflect your values and passions.

We are extremely fortunate to have so many dedicated members, partners, sponsors, and especially volunteers. Without your passion and devotion, the GSC would be an unsustainable organization. Your support enables us to bring top notch geography events to the Chicago area.  Volunteering for the GSC is a great resume builder, and we are always thrilled when our volunteers use us as a reference. For those of you who are interested in giving us a hand with our various geographic projects and programs, please contact us so we can get you involved.
