The Future of Polk Bros. Foundation

Future Plans

As the Foundation's grants grow in number and in size, we continue to look for ways to strategically address the problems facing Chicago's families. In addition to responding to funding requests, we work to identify gaps in service and encourage organizations to design programs to fill those gaps. We also seek out partners and join collaborative efforts in order to benefit from other perspectives and make a larger impact. These initiatives and collaborations span a number of the issues addressed by the Foundation's grantmaking.
