Baird & Warner Donates $100k To Local Charities
Baird & Warner is donating $100k through 10 grants ($10k each) to Chicagoland nonprofit agencies focusing primarily on serving those impacted by homelessness.
The recipients of the grants are: 360 Youth Services, Almost Home Kids, Bridge Communities, Community Crisis Center, Hesed House, Family Promise North Shore, Family Shelter Service, PADS Lake County, Realtors Against Homelessness and Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. They were selected as part of an online campaign aptly named #ShareTheGood, which began with the nomination of charities by Baird & Warner’s broker associates, loan officers and employees. Throughout September, the public cast online votes for the nominees.
The grants were distributed through Baird & Warner's charitable arm, Good Will Network, which has donated more than $2M in grants to Chicagoland nonprofit organizations with a focus on shelters and homelessness, particularly for women and children, since its creation in 2002.
