The Future Philanthropists Program and the Leadership Lab provide students and emerging leaders the opportunity to learn and grow collaboratively for the benefit of our communities. Our annual Excellence in Philanthropy Awards recognize the philanthropic achievements of both individuals and business.


We strengthen our community through philanthropy by providing a central resource for individual and corporate donors, professional financial advisors, students seeking scholarships and with grants and our Impact Excellence program for social impact organizations serving Oak Park, River Forest and nearby communities. Our Community Grants help recipient organizations further transform their programs and increase their meaningful impact on people's lives.
