The South Side Giving Circle launched in 2018 awarding $33,000 to five local Black Women-led organizations. In December 2020, the Queen Makers completed their third year awarding $60,000 to seven organizations and five $1,200 Leadership Awards to Black Women leading incredible work on the South Side and in the South Suburbs. Let's celebrate these organizations, these Black Women leaders and the community of Queen Makers that is dedicated to Black women and girls.
You are invited to attend the upcoming celebrations. Both will be held on Zoom from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
