An intimate group of 70 attendees brought in big money at the Chicago Community Trust’s Nuestro Futuro reception at BMO Harris Bank (115 S. LaSalle). More than $70,000 was raised for Nuestro Futuro, a philanthropic giving circle formed by Chicago’s Latino leaders, which distributes $200,000 in grants every year to local nonprofits. The 2012 Nuestro Futuro grant recipients were recognized during a program honoring longtime supporter King W. Harris for his contributions to the organization.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event. The Sun-Times Foundation and the Chicago Community Trust will match donations to Nuestro Futuro up to a total of $25,000, now through Jan. 1, 2013. Donate now here.
