GENEROSITY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
The ChicagoMSDC invites our friends, colleagues, corporate members and certified minority business enterprises to accept our challenge. Help us raise $50,000 from Nov. 29 - Dec. 29, 2016 in tandem with #GivingTuesday and #ILGive.
For the first time, beginning Tuesday, November 29, 2016, the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council (ChicagoMSDC) will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to celebrating generosity by giving.
#GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world. Last year more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate giving. This year we invite you to support ChicagoMSDC.
THE 50FOR50 CAMPAIGN
ChicagoMSDC is proud to be approaching 50 years of connecting major corporations with certified minority business enterprises (MBE’s). Fifty years represents many opportunities created for contracts, training and education.
In 2016 ChicagoMSDC and the MBDA Business Centers created and retained more than 5,000 jobs, helped to secure approximately $362 million in contracts and assisted with securing more than $30 million in financing for MBE’s. We continued our mission to educate through workshops and publications and awarded scholarships to eight high school seniors.
The campaign goal is to raise $50,000 from Nov. 29 - Dec. 29th. Proceeds will help us award 5 additional academic scholarships in 2017 and offer new business development training for MBEs.
