To date, Help For Children Chicago has distributed 205 grants totaling over $7 million. The Committee of Hearts, founded in 2002 by Elizabeth Foster of Kilkenny Capital Management LLC, has strong partnerships within the alternative investment industry and, with their support, has made a demonstrable difference in the lives of children and families in the Chicago region.
The Committee of Hearts was joined in 2005 by the Committee of Hope, founded by Jennifer Edgcomb of GEM Realty Capital, as a way for rising industry professionals and their peers to contribute to the HFC mission. In joining forces, these two groups created an even larger contribution to local organizations that are dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
The Committee of Hearts holds an eagerly awaited benefit every May in Chicago. The Committee of Hope holds several events throughout the year, including a craft beer event in the fall and a trivia event each winter.
The Twin Cities Committee was founded in 2007 and broadens
the reach of our mission in the Midwest.
Dedicated to making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected
children in the Twin Cities area, the committee holds several events a
year. They look forward to expanding
their ability to support children in need
in their metropolitan area.
