$11.6 Million in New Chicago Investments
Over the past 35 years, we’ve invested $1.1 billion in 1,300 organizations and individuals across the city and especially in low-income neighborhoods — more than any other place in the world.
Today, we announced $11.6 million in new Chicago investments to help spur economic development in low-income neighborhoods, create opportunities for youth and prevent violence, promote police reform and accountability, and support arts and culture.
