Continuing its longtime commitment to healthy neighborhoods, the Foundation will seed the new community fund with an initial grant of $200,000 and invites individuals, foundations and community partners to join in support. While the initial funding is designed to provide a timely response in Sherman Park, the Foundation and other philanthropic partners have been deeply engaged in supporting resident-led neighborhood improvement efforts across the city. This fund is the next step in unifying longer-term improvements.
