Impact Chicago

Sharing Effective Strategies for Community Change

Impact Chicago donor briefings offer an inside look at philanthropy in action. Civic officials, community activists and the Trust’s grant making staff lead an in-depth conversation on urgent social problems, exploring what the trends are, what’s working and how donors can invest in strategies showing real impact.

Previous Impact Chicago events have explored these and other topics drawn from our donors’ areas of interest:

  • gun violence in Chicago
  • the impact of Common Core state standards on our schools
  • competitive workforce development for the region
  • sharing values across generations through family philanthropy
