The West Loop Community Organization (WLCO) is a delegate agency for the City of Chicago. We are a membership-based 501(c)(3) organization that facilitates the growth and integration of businesses and residents within the West Loop community.
Partners get everything we offer bundled into one simple membership. In addition to the Premium automatic sponsorship perk of a whole Fulton Market Expo (FMX) season, Partners are also automatic sponsors of our summer Movies in the Park series and enjoy on-site promotional inclusion at Taste of Randolph, our flagship fundraiser that brings about 80,000 people to the West Loop over Father’s Day weekend in June.
Your tax-deductible Partner Business Membership benefits include marketing and resource opportunities to help your business reach West Loop’s highly valued audience, including:
Promote your business/organization with marketing materials inside WLCO's tent at the Taste of Randolph, which sees about 80,000 attendees a year.
Partners are automatically listed as a Movies in the Park series sponsor.
Partners are automatically listed as a Holiday Event sponsor.
First-time Premium and Partner members receive a free, customized street pole banner near a location of your choosing. The sponsorship is valid for one year from date of installation.
The West Loop Community Organization also serves as your liaison to the City of Chicago. We assist our members with licensing and permitting needs and provide direct lines of communication to local aldermen, the 12th District Police precinct, and the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, to name our most common requests. We also host business improvement workshops and strive to connect compatible members to each other.

Your investment facilitates positive change in the area, and your membership allows your business to get what it needs faster and easier. We can’t wait to work with you.
