SBB Research Group is recognizing three Chicago-area charities as the September 2021 finalists of its monthly grant program supporting impactful nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic (in alphabetical order):
Center of Concern (Des Plaines) offers vital resources for seniors, individuals with disabilities, and families searching for housing.
Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (Lake Forest) operates inclusive recreation and fitness programs to support the development and well-being of individuals with physical or visual disabilities.
Haven Youth & Family Services (Wilmette) provides prevention, intervention, and counseling services for children and families in the local community.
These finalists will give brief presentations via videoconference to the investment firm's staff, who will ask questions to learn more about each of these important causes. The employees will then vote to allocate the company's awards. Each finalist will receive at least a $1,000 donation.
Last month, GiveNKind received a $5,000 grant to connect organizations with quality goods from individuals and businesses, providing nonprofits resources to focus on critical operations and programs. The funds will significantly increase the number of donated products GiveNKind will provide to their nonprofit partners this holiday season.
Any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is encouraged to apply at sbbrg.org/apply-for-grant.
