Future of Chicago Civility is On the Table

Wednesday, February 19, 2014




FOR THE PAST CENTURY, THE CHICAGO COMMUNITY TRUST HAS BEEN THE HEART AND SOUL OF PHILANTHROPY IN METROPOLITAN CHICAGO, LEADING AND INSPIRING PUBLIC INITIATIVES THAT MEASURABLY IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE AND PROSPERITY OF THE REGION.

Since its founding, the Trust has awarded approximately $1.8 billion in grants to more than 11,000 local nonprofit organizations.

The Chicago Community Trust is marking its 99th birthday with a community wide conversation about our collective future. We’re looking forward instead of back, and invite you to join thousands of others to generate new ideas, spark partnerships and shape a public agenda to build and sustain strong, vibrant and safe communities. How do we get there? We plan to put it all On the Table.

The website, www.onthetable2014.com, is now live, and you can join the social media discussion. This unique initiative will bring thousands of Chicago area residents together to discuss our communities and help shape an agenda to build and maintain a future that is strong, safe and dynamic.
