The CME Group Community Foundation provides charitable grants focused on meeting the needs of the global communities in which we live and do business, including providing disaster relief. The CME Group Community Foundation seeks to provide particular support to three areas of concern: children in need, education, and health and human services.

The CME Group Community Foundation also is privileged to partner with non-profit organizations in Chicago and New York to provide needed services and strengthen local communities. By supporting these causes, we are able to help these organizations fulfill their missions of creating brighter futures for those they serve.
