YC2 Program Honors Young Philanthropists

In May, Foundation board and staff gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of our 60 YC2 Changemakers — students from Hinsdale Central High School, Lyons Township High SchoolNazareth Academy, and Riverside Brookfield High School — who collectively awarded $30,000 in grant funding to local nonprofit organizations working to provide basic needs services within the Western Suburbs.

Congrats to the students and their families, and to the grant recipients — BEDS PlusBridge CommunitiesHope’s Front Door, and Housing Forward! The Foundation would also like to thank our funding partners — The Burjan Family, Moira & Paul Naffah, and Corlyn & Jeff Simmons — for their generosity in supporting the program.

Our media partners at Hinsdale Magazine and The Hinsdalean did an amazing job capturing the spirit in the room that day. We invite you to read all about it!
