He's a discreet supporter of a wide range of nonprofits and worthy causes, including the 100 Club of Chicago, American Red Cross, The Art Institute of Chicago, A Better Chicago, Boy Scouts of America, Chicago Architecture Foundation, Chicago Foundation for Women, The Field Museum, Global FoodBanking Network, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Holocaust Museum, Invest For Kids, Polsky Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago, Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Hospital and Wounded Warrior Project.
