Created as a charitable trust in 1955, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation works to "develop citizen leaders and works to make life better in our communities.” This particular corner of its site brings together a range of resources for teachers, students, policy researchers, and others. The site contains four areas: Tools for Learning, Research & Reports, Multimedia Gallery, and Stay in the Loop. A subset of Tools for Learning is the Tools for Journalists area. Here, visitors can look over resources for covering news stories along with the "Chicago is the World" resource for writing about different ethnic groups. In Research & Reports, visitors can look over recent reports which include, "The Youngest Illinoisians: A Statistical Look at Infants and Toddlers in Illinois,” and a range of other reports dating back to 2012. The Multimedia Gallery contains links to videos that report on outreach efforts as well as special collaborative efforts with other organizations.
