November 2018 Newsletter

  
This is the time of year when we reflect and give thanks.
 
This is the year that Impact 100 Chicago could reach a milestone of giving 3 million dollars to our communities in just 9 years!!!
 
$3 MILLION  transforming and saving lives across the Chicagoland area, both city and suburbs. 64 nonprofits have benefitted from Impact 100 Chicago's grants, and the number of lives impacted is immeasurable.
 
Help us reach our goal by donating what you can: every dollar makes a difference and will touch a life.  Women have the power and the passion to stand up and fight for positive change in our communities.  
 
We are on a journey to better lives in the world around us.

Why Do We Give?       To Transform Lives
 
Thank you to all who came to our Member Kick-Off Celebration on October 23rd!  Chandler 's in Schaumburg was a beautiful setting for an inspiring evening of great food, friends and stories of hope.  Our presenters from Shelter, Inc and St Leonard's Ministries did a wonderful job updating our members on the good work they are doing as a result of our $100,000 Impact Grants, and everyone left with a renewed passion for our mission.  We're looking forward to another "impactful" year of collective giving.  

Because of our calendar shift, detailed in previous communications, we asked for your membership contribution to be paid by November.  This helps us plan our budget; however, we'll still accept your Membership Donation until December 31st.
