98th Anniversary Celebration

Thank you for joining us to Celebrate 98!


On April 30, 2013, we had the honor of presenting some of the most compelling stories from 98 years of philanthropy in Chicago. Our generous donors and dynamic nonprofits joined forces to show just what is possible when investment powers innovation. Thank you to everyone who came to stand by us at the Harris Theater that evening.


Meet Terrence Poole, an ex-offender and Lawndale native who has changed his course with the help of the Safer Foundation.

Meet teacher Steve Drent, who has revolutionized his approach to teaching math through the Suburban Cook Mathematics Initiative.

You can find more special moments from the rooftop reception and the performances on Flickr.
