Bunker Hill Charities is an Illinois Nonprofit Corporation founded on October 14, 2015 to affect societal change and improve the quality of living for Northwestern Illinois communities and neighboring areas. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. These needs are addressed through funding, volunteer coordination and building relationships between the various charitable organizations and resources serving the local community. These partner organizations are Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3) organizations with an impactful mission and programs for the community that address a specific need researched by Bunker Hill Farms.
The charity has a strong commitment to the next generation by providing character development education and mentorship as an investor and collaborative partner to Lift up America and the Ambassadors of Compassion initiatives. Additionally, Bunker Hill Charities is a significant contributor to a high school entrepreneurship incubator program. This initiative not only fosters and recognizes innovative educational models but also utilizes community leaders and business owners to become coaches and mentors to teach and guide students.
“As the Board President for Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County, I will be forever grateful to Bunker Hill Charities. Their unique and generous approach to fundraising enabled us to broaden the awareness of what the agency does and directly assisted us with improving the lives of additional kids in the community.”

“I’d like to thank Mike and the team at Bunker Hill Charities for working with us at the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation on our annual Barndance. The live auction at our event each year is a real spectacle with a generous crowd competing for interesting and unique auction packages. Over the last few years the Bunker Hill Farms outing has been a highlight at our auction since it is an incredibly unique and fun property combined with first class service. Each of the buyers of the Bunker Hill experience package has raved about the guest experience at Bunker Hill: beautiful property, exclusive feel, excellent service and great food – no detail is missed! We are proud to be able to work with such a generous group as Bunker Hill Charities and hope that we’ll be able to continue for many years into the future.”
