Chicago Foundation for Women is celebrating 30 years of working on behalf of women and girls!
For 30 years, our Annual Luncheon has celebrated the achievements of women and girls by bringing together a diverse audience that includes business, philanthropy, government, nonprofit, media and community members. Proceeds help the Foundation achieve its mission to connect need, money and solutions for women and girls throughout metropolitan Chicago. Since 1985, we have given more than 3,000 grants totaling nearly $24 million and helped thousands of women and girls become philanthropists.
This year, we are bringing back our Symposium. CFW will host a public, educational symposium for the Chicago community the morning preceding its Annual Luncheon. At the 30th Anniversary Symposium, CFW will formally unveil The Civic Plan: CFW's Call to Action for Elevating Women and Girls. This informative and engaging morning will be free and open to the public. Included will be a networking breakfast, an opening presentation with a plenary speaker to welcome an expected 500 attendees, followed by unveiling the plan and discussion. You don't want to miss this exciting moment!
Join us for our 30th Anniversary Annual Luncheon as we commemorate 30 years of our investments in basic rights and equal opportunities for women and girls all throughout Chicago.
