MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
This summer, I had the privilege of going to Africa with a group of funders, teachers, and corporate leaders. During that time, we came alongside 120 leaders from 26 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa on the topic of local sustainability. Each of the 120 individuals represented a leader, board member, or spouse overseeing an organization engaged in developing leaders on college campuses across the continent. Each individual was also present because they wanted to see almost 80 percent of their income and support coming from local, sustainable initiatives.
The work we do at Goodcity prepared me for our time in Africa. As I shared with our U.S. teammates, the models we are creating in Chicago affect the models being created around the world. The work we are doing in under-resourced communities in Chicago -- helping social entrepreneurs with organizational capacity development, board development, funding, marketing, communications -- shape the ways that leaders of organizations around the world are thinking about their communities. I am grateful for the responsibility we have as an organization, but also recognize the magnitude of that responsibility.
For over 27 years, Goodcity has served as a catalyst to come alongside strategic leaders to begin organizations that make a difference in their communities, to build leaders who are continually looking at innovative and strategic ways to grow their organizations, and to connect these leaders with each other for collective community impact.
We need each of you to invest in the work we are doing. Will you join us this month and invest your gifts so that communities in Chicago are renewed, and as a result communities around the world are impacted too?
