Inspiring gratitude in future generations through education and service

g2 provides community-service opportunities in the Chicago area for children, families and organizations.


We're supporting our neighbors in need while building a new generation of service-minded leaders.

We have a new home! Welcome to g2HQ!

After nearly four years of operating Gratitude Generation out of Board members' homes and garages, local parks, borrowed spaces and a trusty storage unit, we're thrilled to announce that g2 has a physical home of our own!


Our new "g2HQ" is located at 815 Rosemary Terrace in Deerfield, and we've turned it into a fun, welcoming space for meetings and service events, as well as the g2 Personal Care Closet! 

This space is critical to our growth and our future, to support it, please consider a donation to our Capital Campaign. 

Get Involved with g2!
