Chicago Foundation for Women's 30th Anniversary and Symposium
On Tuesday, September 29, The Chicago Network will join nearly 2,000 women and men at Chicago Foundation for Women’s 30th Anniversary Luncheon. The Annual Luncheon is an exciting and inspirational event that brings together women and men from the philanthropic, business and local communities. This year’s keynote speaker is Ashley Judd, actress and women’s rights champion!
Last year, the sold-out Annual Luncheon event raised $1.2 million dollars. These dollars support over 60 different women and girl-serving nonprofit organizations through grants, capacity building seminars, advocacy and public education. Chicago Foundation for Women makes sure the money goes where it is needed most and can do the most good. They look for innovation, and they demand results.
This is why we're helping raise money for CFW’s Annual Luncheon. CFW has given more than 3,000 grants totaling nearly $24 million dollars. Poverty, violence, and a lack of health options or access affect women differently, and sometimes disproportionately. Chicago Foundation for Women targets that disparity.
Our goal is to host a table of 10 or more friends and colleagues who also believe that when you support women and girls, whole communities thrive. You can purchase a $150.00 ticket in honor of the 30th Anniversary today.
Register to join us at the 30th Anniversary Luncheon and Symposium and become a part of this city-wide movement to improve the lives of women and girls. REGISTER
If you are unable to attend, you can still make a contribution. INVEST
