Please support the Chicago Lions Charitable Association so that we can foster and promote amateur rugby sports competition more broadly among the general populations. Through this multi-generational charitable approach, the CLCA can promote healthy physical activities in a competitive environment, thereby producing better citizens in Chicago and beyond.

The main way we plan to accomplish our mission is to create a premier multi-use sports complex in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago in one of Chicago’s most under resourced areas and to provide mentoring through athletics as an alternative to gangs and guns.

Our goal is to raise $12 million to build the sports complex. There are several ways to contribute

  • J. Tyke and Jane Nollman Fieldhouse Matching Program: Jane and Tyke Nollman will match dollar for dollar up to $400,000 for the building at the Lions for Hope Sports Complex
  • Lions for Hope Sports Complex: Make a donation to help us build our multi-sports complex
  • General donation: Make a donation to support the ongoing operations of the CLCA
