FOUNDATION SEEKS TO CLOSE THE RACIAL AND ETHNIC WEALTH GAP

Chicago Community Trust is more than 100 years old, but its mission of bringing greater equity and economic development to the Chicagoland region remains the same. Dr. Helene Gayle is the president and CEO of Chicago Community Trust. She said the community foundation is able to connect philanthropy to impact because there is a broad base of donors who want to invest in the community. “We work with donors who want to invest in the Chicago region and help to connect them to opportunities that can allow them to use their dollars in ways that make the biggest difference,” Gayle said.
