Thank you to Eva Penar, Director of Marketing and Communications at The Chicago Community Trust, and Jean Westrick, Independent Consultant to the Trust, for leading a dynamic discussion at the Philanthropy Club’s March 3rd session on how individuals and organizations can participate in the Trust’s civic engagement initiative called On the Table.
In 2014, the ambassador program for On the Table created a social viral campaign that led to over 17 million digital impressions. As May 12, 2015 marks the Trust’s Centennial, that day will see thousands of people throughout Chicagoland gathered around tables sharing meals, sharing stories and sharing commitments to make our region the most philanthropic in the nation. These conversations will bring people together around a common vision which is the first step to realizing change and making an impact in our communities.
Barkada Circle is happy to be an ambassador for the program and will be hosting two On the Tables, one in the city and one in a suburb. Stay tuned for details.
