Dear West Haven Stake Holder

We hope you will join us on July 14 for a community conversation about Benefit Chicago, a new collaboration that aims to mobilize $100 million for loans and other investments that fuel nonprofits, social enterprises, and businesses intended to revitalize communities in need of investment.

Launched jointly by The Chicago Community Trust, the MacArthur Foundation and Calvert Foundation, Benefit Chicago expands on existing grants and investments throughout the region with additional capital to help finance important community development activities, such as expanding businesses; creating and preserving affordable housing; building needed community facilities; or providing responsible, affordable financial products.

What: Benefit Chicago Community Update
When: July 14 2016   10:00 AM
Where: 1939 W. Lake St. Community Room, West Haven Park Apts.
Who: The Chicago Community Trust and the MacArthur Foundation

Representatives will provide an overview of the program, as well as details about eligibility and the process to apply for a loan or investment. There will be ample time for Q&A.

Please RSVP by calling MK Communications at 312.822.0505. Advance registration is required. If you are unable to join us, you can find more information about Benefit Chicago and details about future community meetings at www.benefitCHI.org.  We look forward to seeing you on July 14!
