Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively fund grants to charitable initiatives that serve this region. The goal is to identify unmet needs in the community and provide grants to nonprofits for impactful change in Cook County. We are committed to promoting volunteerism by exposing our Membership to many local worthwhile charities. We help our Members become more educated and informed about philanthropic choices and meet like-minded women who share their interests.
