Let’s build something together

When our communities are faced with adversity, we're there to answer the call. This was particularly true when the health crisis hit home, and hard. We took action providing significant relief funds to frontline caregivers for medical equipment and materials to help them combat the virus and support families affected. Relief was targeted in communities of color, who have seen disproportionately high rates of impact. Additional grants were made to the local tech industry to innovate solutions through the pandemic and support the economic stability of startup businesses. To help kids stay in school, we worked with city colleges across Chicago to provide emergency funds for students at risk of dropping out. Moving forward, we're focusing our efforts on initiatives that accelerate economic recovery for Black and Latinx communities and supporting long-term change.
