Some exciting news from our friends at A Better Chicago, a nonprofit venture philanthropy fund operating out of 1871. Working in partnership with The Joyce Foundation, The Pritzker Traubert Family Foundation and The Schwertfeger Family Foundation, A Better Chicago has launched Project Impact, a competition to identify innovative nonprofit models that are enabling low-income Chicagoans to rise out of poverty.
The competition is designed to inspire innovation in Chicago’s nonprofit sector. It aims toenable high potential, early stage nonprofits to access the resources, visibility and support they need to scale up their operations. Additionally, Project Impact provides rising leaders in Chicago with a unique civic engagement opportunity by involving them as judges to select the winning venture.
The winner of Project Impact will be awarded a grant of $100,000, introductions to Chicago’s civic and business leaders and 12 months of management support from A Better Chicago. U.S. based nonprofits with a focus on early childhood development, K-12 education or workforce development that are planning to grow or replicate in the Chicago area are eligible to enter. For more information or to apply for Project Impact by the August 15th deadline, visit www.abetterchicago.org/projectimpact.
