Letter from the President and Chairman of the Executive Committee

Frank M. Clark (l.) and Terry Mazany

Dear Friends, The story of 2012 is one of mindful movement: of charting new courses to navigate a changing world. As the economic climate continued to challenge so many families in our region, our donors responded with compassion and creativity, supporting vital programs that help buoy our region’s quality of life. Their generosity is the fuel that powers the engines of philanthropy, helping to make this a year of renewed energy and new direction.

of three days, dozens of Nobel Peace Prize laureates and representatives of laureate organizations converged in Chicago. They shared their stories of peace in action — and beyond the lecture halls, they visited classrooms to inspire and encourage the next generation of visionaries and peacemakers. Through live webcasts of the summit, classrooms around the world were immersed in the message, and students shared the moment with their peers around the globe.

This year the Trust made the first grants that put our new strategic priorities into action. These outcome-based funding strategies were the result of thoughtful partnership among our staff, our Executive Committee and experts in the com­ munity, pooling their expertise about our region’s potential for prosperity — and about what it takes to get there.

Partnership gained a new home ground this year as the Trust opened the doors of its new offices. Still situated in the heart of Chicago, we are now in a space with more community meeting rooms than ever, expanding the opportunities for the kind of face-to-face interaction that deepens trust and ignites new ideas.

The new funding priorities reflect the evolution in our relationship with Chicago’s nonprofits. Only by immersing ourselves in their acquired wisdom about what works, have we been able to craft specific funding strategies that will yield impact. And by reframing our grant opportunities — as invitations for nonprofits to demonstrate how their programs play a unique role in achieving that impact — we cement our relationship with each grant recipient, not as giver and receiver, but as true partners in innovation. Partnership united the Trust in a global network of justice and compassion this year. In April, we worked with the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights to host the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates. Over the course

From literal moves to paradigm shifts, the Trust was ever in motion this year — and yet steadfast and unshaken in our commitment to the region. Nimble response and unwavering stewardship. Strategic innovation and constant care. These qualities make up the essence of a community foundation’s promise — and the foundation of our partnership with each resident we serve. Sincerely,

Terry Mazany President and Chief Executive Officer

Frank M. Clark Chairman of the Executive Committee

2012 Annual Report


Year in Review December 3, 2011 The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awards the West Cook County Housing Collab­ orative, an initiative supported by the Trust, a $2.9 million grant. The collab­orative uses the funds to create transit-oriented, affordable housing developments in five west Cook County suburban communities.

2012 Annual Report


The Trust: A Vital Asset for 97 Years Why Chicago needs an endowed community foundation Founded 97 years ago, The Chicago Community Trust is one of the oldest and largest of more than 700 community foundations, which together serve more than 86 percent of the United States. The Trust’s work illustrates how an endowed community foundation can have a deep and lasting impact on the region. When Norman Harris and his son, Albert Harris of Harris Trust and Savings Bank, founded the Trust in 1915, the concept of an endowed foundation was only a year old, inspired by The Cleveland Foundation’s creation in 1914. The idea was that every community would benefit if donors pooled their donations to serve the most vulnerable residents, not just for the moment, but in perpetuity. Building on the Harris family’s ambitious venture, the Trust and its donors have been instrumental in creating one of the greatest

cities in the world. Whether in times of need or prosperity, the Trust has used the resources that the community has entrusted to it to give back to the region in a way that has transformed lives and empowered communities for the last 97 years. The depth and breadth of its grant making benefits virtually every resident in the region. It includes strengthening teaching and learning in schools; mitigating foreclosures; developing new audiences for small arts groups; creating safer, healthier neighborhoods; developing clean energy sources; and providing food and shelter for low-income residents in the region. The Trust’s endowment is the source of its competitive grants program. The Trust makes use of its expertise and broad understanding of metropolitan Chicago to invest in nonprofit organizations that will have the greatest impact in the region. The Trust is also home to more than 1,000 funds and nearly 1,900 generous donors, who are an integral part of the Trust family. Donors work with the Trust to understand the region’s needs and carry out effective grant making. The following pages demonstrate how the concept of an endowed community foundation is as vital to the Chicago region in 2012 as it has been for the past 97 years. The Trust supported the South Shore Opera Company because it has energized the South Side of Chicago with an art form that has historically been under­performed in its community.

Five values define our promise to the individuals and communities we serve: Integrity: Our responsibility, first and foremost, is to

uphold the public trust placed in us and to ensure that we emulate the highest ethical standards, honor our commitments, remain objective and transparent, and respect all of our stakeholders. Stewardship and Service: We endeavor to provide the

highest level of service and due diligence to our donors and grant recipients and to safeguard donor intent in perpetuity. 6

Collaboration: We value the transformative power of partnerships based on mutual interests, trust and respect. We work in concert with those who are similarly dedicated to improving our community. Innovation: We seek and stimulate new approaches that address what matters most to the people and communities we serve as well as support others who do likewise in our shared commitment to improve metropolitan Chicago. Diversity and Inclusion: Our strength is found in our

differences, and we strive to integrate diversity in all that we do.

Civic and Cultural Vitality

To maintain its status as a leading global city—which in turn reinforces economic development—Chicago must invest in the strength of its arts and nonprofit sectors, seek to improve the relationships among its increasingly diverse population and institute good government practices.

The Trust awarded a grant to Community Service Partners, which is a back-office collaboration of five nonprofits that serve people with developmental disabilities. They work together to save on administrative costs through joint purchasing and sharing fiscal, information technology and human resources. Here Ed Clarke (standing), the information technology director of Community Service Partners, provides IT support for the computer lab at SouthSTAR Services, a member of Community Service Partners. Photo courtesy of Community Service Partners.

The Trust helped fund the development of the City of Chicago Cultural Plan 2012. The City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events held town hall meetings throughout the year to get input from residents and other stakeholders in developing the new cultural plan. The plan, which was unveiled in October 2012, emphasizes enhancing access to the arts in the city’s neighborhoods and arts education.

Thousands of young people who are illegally living in Illinois flocked to the DREAM Convention on August 15, 2012, at Navy Pier to apply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which would give them a two-year deferral from deportation and legal authorization to work. The event was held in support of the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, also known as the DREAM Act, a bill introduced in Congress that would allow the children of undocumented parents to stay in the United States to continue their high school and college education and ultimately obtain citizenship. The Trust awarded a grant to the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights to host the event. Photo by James Warden.

The Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust

The Business of Science As a panelist at the IndEx conference, Andrew Cittadine (second from l.), president and CEO of American BioOptics and a partici­pant in the PROPEL Center program, shared how PROPEL helped him take his diagnostic technology from the bench to an effective out-licensing deal while avoiding intellectual property pitfalls along the way. Photo courtesy of the iBIO Institute.

The Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust helps life sciences companies succeed in metropolitan Chicago—ultimately strengthening the region’s economy. When life sciences entrepreneurs sought guidance and support on how to turn novel ideas into successful businesses, there weren’t many resources to access for help. That was until the iBIO Institute launched the PROPEL Center in 2007 with the mission to increase “the number of life sciences start-ups in Illinois and boost the success rates of existing companies.” Through an expansive series of programs, PROPEL so far has supported over 75 companies since its launch five years ago— with about 46 firms that are still active. They have developed pioneering technologies and medical products, ranging from biological drugs to medical imaging devices that can detect cancer during surgery. Nearly 50 patents have been issued so far. 36

“These companies are critical to re-engineering our economy,” says David Miller, president and chef executive officer of the iBIO Institute. “And we need to have more good ideas brought forward.” Game-Changing Support Thanks to more than $500,000 in grants from the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust, PROPEL has been able to expand its efforts and meet its mission in advancing the number of early-stage and existing life sciences and biotechnology entrepreneurs. It also was able to continue its extensive support for the firms currently in the program.

Th e S e ar l e F u n ds at Th e C hicag o Co mm u n it y Tr u s t

For the Searle family, the center has created a platform for game-changing technologies that will maintain Chicago’s role as an industry leader. “As longtime champions of the biomedical industry in Chicago, we recognized a critical gap in supporting cutting-edge science that the iBIO Institute and the PROPEL Center fills,” says Karie Thomson, a member of the Searle family who serves as a consultant to the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust. “By providing much-needed direct assistance and capacity building, the center positions leading life sciences entrepreneurs to scale their innovative achievements, which has ripple effects across Chicago’s biomedical industry and strengthens the regional economy as a whole.” Building Momentum With the Searle funding, PROPEL expanded its staff and resources to assist its budding companies. The center, for instance, introduced in October 2012 a new grant program to aid PROPEL companies in applying for and obtaining federal awards through the Small Business Innovation Research program and/or its parallel Small Business Technology Transfer program. The Searle grants, most importantly, attracted funding from other sources—including the Illinois Department of Commerce

and Economic Opportunity and major life sciences corporations, such as Abbott Laboratories, Baxter International Inc. and Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc. “The Searle funding continued to build momentum for the center,” says Barbara Goodman, senior vice president of PROPEL. “When I talk about building momentum, this is something that the community is invested in, and we are now seeing the snowball effect. There’s a growing, exciting life sciences entrepreneurial community in the Chicago area.” Over the last five years, the center has been able to recruit an expansive number of volunteers from the business community. They’re seasoned entrepreneurs who help participants refine their business strategies through one-on-one coaching as well as the hundreds of executives and active investors who participate in workshop panels and roundtable discussions. Topics have included how to strengthen the investor pitch, use the angel investment tax credit program and set the stage for investment. They also judge the annual business plan competition, offering feedback to all of the participants. For many of the entrepreneurs currently involved, the support has been vital to developing their products and getting it on the market. “The most helpful was connecting us with others who could guide us to the next step and help us to get to the point where we could attract outside investors, angel funding and set us up for the next subsequent stage of development,” says Dr. Erik Kulstad, co-founder and chief executive officer of Advanced Cooling Therapy, LLC. Scientific Breakthroughs Kulstad, who won PROPEL’s 2012 business plan competition, created a medical device that controls patients’ temperatures in a noninvasive manner and increases their chances of recovery. His idea came about while working in emergency medicine at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn. It’s in the final development stages, and he hopes to have it on the market in 2013. “I don’t think I would be here talking about our company if I didn’t have that support from PROPEL,” he says. Also, two firms so far have successfully reached the key mile­ stone for start-ups, known as the liquidity event in the business world. That’s typically when investors and business owners

Searle Scholars The Searle Scholars Program was designed and created by the Searle family in 1980 to nurture creative talent in scientific research. Since its inception, the program has been supported by the charitable lead trusts established under the wills of John G. and Francis C. Searle, which emphasize supporting research in medicine, chemistry and biological science. The family selected The Chicago Community Trust as the organization to which it would make distributions from the Searle Family Trust to support the Searle Scholars Program. Approximately 15 percent of the funds come from the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust. The other 85 percent of the funds come from the annual grants recommended by Searle family representatives and approved by the trustees of the Searle family trusts. The Searle Scholars Program is administered by a distin­ guished scientist selected by the Searle family. He appoints an advisory board of eminent scientists who choose the Searle Scholars based on rigorous standards aimed at finding the most creative talent interested in pursuing an academic research career. Since the program began in 1980, 512 Searle Scholars have been named. Approximately 10 percent have been inducted into the National Academy of Sciences. Fifteen Searle Scholars have been recognized with the MacArthur Fellowship, known as the “genius grant.” And a Searle Scholar has even been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.


The 2012 scholars and their institutions are listed below. Each institution will receive $300,000 over three years in research support for each Searle Scholar. The total amount awarded this year was $4.5 million, which brings the value of all awards since 1980 to more than $106.6 million.

can exit their initial ventures and put their companies on the market to realize the return on their investments. One of those companies was American BioOptics, which develops diagnostic tools to identify patients at high risk for colon cancer. In 2010, an international medical device company acquired a majority of American BioOptics.

Cittadine has since moved on to head the medical imaging company Diagnostic Photonics, which has developed a device that allows doctors to detect the location of cancer during surgery. It’s actively on trial at three medical facilities, including at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Ill. Next year the trial will be expanded to at least six medical facilities.

CEO Andrew Cittadine attributes the company’s progression to “our outstanding group of mentors”—one of whom was William Moffitt, president and CEO of Nanosphere, Inc., a leader in the development and commercialization of advanced molecular diagnostics systems. “It was invaluable to have that personal group and reference point in the industry,” says Cittadine.

“Because of iBIO and PROPEL, the life sciences and medical device industry as a whole has made significant progress,” Cittadine says.

A Donor’s Story

The Art of Healing Jean Cozier helps abuse survivors heal through creative expression.

T h e C hicag Th h i c a g o C o mm m m u n i t y Tr Trust

“It’s nice to know that if I’m in a quandary or need some new thoughts or I need a question answered, I can always turn to the Trust. I feel supported by the Trust, which has the [philanthropic] expertise that I don’t have.” – Jean Cozier When you meet Jean Cozier, she immediately makes you feel comfortable with her vibrant personality, infectious laughter and beaming smile. This longtime donor to The Chicago Community Trust draws on that positive energy to tackle a taboo topic that she is all too familiar with. A survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Cozier uses her donor advised fund at the Trust to support the Awakenings Foundation, an organization she founded to help victims of sexual abuse and rape use art to heal from their trauma while bringing awareness to the problem. “I’m trying to get people to open up their eyes and get real about how widespread sexual abuse is and how horrific it is and how hard it is to heal from it,” says Cozier, president and founder of the Awakenings Foundation. Cathartic Experience The Awakenings Foundation supports the healing of survivors of sexual abuse and rape as they explore their feelings through artistic expression, such as painting, writing and music. The foundation’s center and gallery in Ravenswood provides a safe haven for these artists to share their stories and showcase their work. It displays a collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures and multimedia pieces created by survivors of sexual violence. In addition, the foundation hosts special exhibits, performances and workshops at its gallery space and venues throughout the city. Awakenings also administers the Judith Dawn Memorial Fund for the Arts, a scholarship program for sexual assault survivors who wish to pursue the creative arts as a means of healing. Cozier established the program in memory of her cousin, Judith Dawn Hickey, an incest survivor. Before she died in 1998 from colon cancer, Hickey had taken art classes and discovered art was therapeutic for her. She painted more than 300 canvases in one year. “It really just exploded out of her. She was incredibly prolific,” says Cozier, who wrote a book about Hickey’s journey to survival called Dear Judith. “So I was able to see what it had done for her and how it helped heal her and empower her.” “It’s not really about professional art education,” she adds. “It’s about giving a survivor a chance to find a voice and do something creative that can also be healing at the same time.” Creative Collaboration Since opening in 2010, Awakenings has cultivated a nurturing environment for many local artists, musicians and writers

to create and share their work. But it wasn’t easy for the foundation to get to this point, especially at the beginning. When she began the process of creating Awakenings in 2009, Cozier wanted to support it through her donor advised fund at the Trust, but legal regulations prohibit grant making organizations from accepting donations from donor advised funds. So Cozier and her attorney worked with the Trust staff for about a year to create Awakenings as a private operating foundation, a legal entity that would allow her to fund the foundation through her donor advised fund. “The Trust helped me set up something that works the way I wanted it to,” she says. Cozier is now able to use her fund at the Trust to provide general operating support for Awakenings. In addition, she will con­ tinue to support nonprofits and programs that offer healing and advocacy services through the fund. By working with the Trust to administer her donor advised fund, Cozier can devote more time to carrying out Awakenings’ mission. “Everything I do with my donor advised fund is aimed at heal­ing from sexual abuse. I don’t get too much involved in lobbying and advocacy. I’m not a therapist. I don’t know how to prevent it and make it stop,” Cozier says. “But I know a lot about healing because I’m a survivor myself. I know a lot about what you can do if you sit down and write about it or if you sit down and draw it, if you sing about it. I know how that can empower people. So that’s what I try to concentrate on.” 2012 Annual Report

A Donor’s Story

Lasting Effects Mary Pattillo witnesses the impact of collective philanthropy in action by working with the African American Legacy.

“You need to always recognize your responsibility and duty to give back. The Chicago Community Trust has given me the infrastructure to do that.” – Mary Pattillo Mary Pattillo knows how valuable a grant from The Chicago Community Trust is. The sociology professor received one herself 12 years ago to carry out her research on public housing in Chicago. Now she’s on the other side of the table. As a member of the African American Legacy (AAL), an identityfocused fund at the Trust, she helps award grants to nonprofit organizations that work to enhance the quality of life for African Americans throughout metropolitan Chicago—giving her an up-close look into grant making and the powerful impact of collective philanthropy. “There is so much need, so much work to be done, so many racial inequalities that the African-American community experiences,” says Pattillo, the Harold Washington professor of sociology and African-American studies at Northwestern University. “I’m generally passionate about doing my part in intervening and helping to alleviate some of those challenges or at least give people the tools to rise above those challenges.” Family Matters That passion prompted Pattillo to join the African American Legacy in 2007. As a member of AAL’s grants committee, she and the other committee members guided the full group’s process to determine the focus of the fund’s grant making. AAL decided to support nonprofits that strengthen African-American families because they are the cornerstone of a community. By doing so, AAL can address a plethora of challenges that families face, such as unemployment, financial counseling, health care and the criminal justice system. “The problems of African-American families really interface with a lot of other concerns,” Pattillo says. Since 2005, AAL has granted more than $1 million from its endowment to over 50 nonprofits. Of all the nonprofits that AAL has supported, Pattillo is parti­ cularly impressed with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Cook County, which assigns advocates to represent the interests of abused or neglected children in the foster care system. CASA was awarded a grant from AAL to recruit and train more African-American volunteers to serve as advocates. Each of these volunteer advocates undergoes extensive training and continuing education and works about 18 to 24 months on a case. Although CASA advocates are not legal representatives or guardians, they provide a voice for the children in court, working to ensure they receive the social and legal services they need and

live in safe, permanent homes. “These are young people who have almost no one, and so, having that kind of long-term advocate through an extremely confusing, difficult, bureaucratic, legalese process is incredibly important,” Pattillo says. Trust in the Trust In addition to better understanding the impact of non­profits like CASA, Pattillo has gained insight into the rigorous grant making process. She and the grants committee work closely with the Trust staff to evaluate the nonprofits seeking grants, including the programs’ likely impact in the communities they serve, financial solvency and commitment to diversity. “[The Trust] knows the Chicago nonprofit landscape, and they can see a red flag where some of us might not. They can advise us that this might be a risk, and we can make a decision if we want to take that risk,” Pattillo explains. Pattillo plans to put that expertise to work with the donor advised fund she recently opened at the Trust. She intends to support educational and scholarship programs through her donor advised fund, but knows that she can turn to the Trust for grant making guidance as well as professional financial management of the money in her fund—allowing her to fulfill her philanthropic goals now and for years to come. “The Chicago Community Trust is one of the biggest players in the game,” Pattillo says. “And that, of course, means you can have a lot of trust in how your resources will be managed. It is long standing and well established. So you can feel good that they’ve had many years of good stewardship. That gives me confidence that that kind of good stewardship will continue into the future.” 2012 Annual Report


Grants from Supporting Organizations Supporting organizations are affiliates that operate in conjunction with The Chicago Community Trust. Because of their association with the Trust, supporting organizations enjoy benefits such as favorable tax treatment, exclusion from restrictions normally placed on private foundations, and the Trust’s expert staff and resources. Though these affiliates work closely with the Trust, each retains its unique identity and is responsible for its own grant making decisions, investments and operations.

Burridge D. Butler Memorial Trust Established in 1951, the Burridge D. Butler Memorial Trust is the oldest supporting organization of The Chicago Community Trust. About 20 percent of the annual earned income from this trust is designated for the Children’s Home and Aid Society of Illinois. The remaining earned income benefits the general charitable purposes of The Chicago Community Trust. Board of Directors A. James Anderson, chairman Jeffrey E. Kintzler, secretary Carl Albrecht Richard F. Cook Richard C. Johnson Patricia D. Michael

Leaving a Legacy in Chicago

The Chicago Community Trust’s gift planning program provides peace of mind. After Ted Utchen retired from a private Chicago-based family investment company, he turned his attention to charitable giving. The more research he did, the more he worried that he would designate a gift for a charity that might close or somehow lose its way. Utchen had heard of The Chicago Community Trust’s estate giving program and ultimately decided to designate the majority of his estate to the Trust in his will. “They are here in the region where my career has been, and this is where I’d like to do something important,” he says. “I have no doubt my estate will be serving good purposes.” A Myriad of Giving Options Jason M. Baxendale, director of gift planning at the Trust, says leaving charitable gifts in the Trust’s care can alleviate concerns like Utchen’s. “This institution was designed to safeguard your intent for perpetuity,” he says.

Ted Utchen (l.) was inducted into The 1915 Society on May 31, 2012, at the annual 1915 Society Luncheon, where keynote speaker Geoffrey Baer (r.) of WTTW entertained guests with stories of how the Trust’s history intersects with the history of Chicago. Photo by Laura Witherow.

If a donor leaves a gift to a specific nonprofit, for instance, the Trust will ensure that the organization is stable and true to the donor’s intent. “If it closes or experiences mission drift, we will apply the funds to the most similar organization possible,” Baxendale says.

Donors may also choose to designate their gifts to certain causes—such as after-school programs or medical research—then charge the Trust to allocate the funds to appropriate nonprofits. An unrestricted gift is another option, says Baxendale: “When you do that, you’re saying to the Trust, ‘You know the city’s most pressing needs and you always will. Choose the best and highest use for this gift.’” When donors include the Trust in their wills, they become members of the Trust’s 1915 Society, which holds annual lun­cheons to thank donors and update them on the Trust’s activities. Utchen was an inductee at the most recent event in May. For many donors, their gifts to the Trust are the biggest and grandest ones they will ever give. “The impact is so great,” Baxendale says. “When someone gives, what they’re saying is: ‘I’m a Chicagoan and I love this city dearly. I want to make a gift that will improve the quality of life in this community that has always nurtured me and been instrumental in my success.’” Vice President of Development and Donor Services Jamie Phillippe (l.) and Kassie Davis (r.), both members of The 1915 Society, attended The 1915 Society Luncheon, which the Trust held to thank the members of the society for securing metropolitan Chicago’s future by including the Trust in their estate plans.

In Memoriam

A Life of Service Jimmie Alford dedicated his career to strengthening the nonprofit sector. With a heavy heart, The Chicago Community Trust, metropol­ itan Chicago and the nation lost one of the greatest champions for the nonprofit and philanthropic world. Jimmie Alford, the founder of the premier national consulting firm for nonprofits, The Alford Group, passed away on December 18, 2012, at age 69. His family, friends and colleagues remember him as a man of service, mentor, philanthropic visionary, and wonderful husband and father. “Jimmie believed in helping people to live a life of significance,” says Maree Bullock, Alford’s wife of 15 years. “People could always trust him to give the right advice and help them to go beyond what they thought they could do.” Over the last 50 years, Alford dedicated his career to public service and guiding nonprofits and foundations like the Trust

Jimmie Alford, founder of The Alford Group, a consulting firm exclusively for nonprofit organizations, devoted his 50year career to helping nonprofits maximize their opportunities and vision.

to reach their full potential beyond just fundraising. He counseled organizations on their overall operations, governance practices, staffing and strategic planning. In 2009, Alford helped the Trust develop and launch its $1 billion endowment campaign. The Trust so far has raised $800 million. He also helped the Trust better engage and nurture its relation­ships with potential donors, volunteers and civic leaders. “Jimmie helped us create a culture of philanthropy and a culture of customer service,” says Jamie Phillippe, vice president of development and donor services at the Trust. “He gave his time and expertise to everyone,” adds Phillippe, who previously worked as a vice president at The Alford Group for three years, helping to build the firm’s client base. “To lose somebody so skilled in fundraising and working with nonprofit leaders at such an early age leaves a big void.”

The Better Government Association presented Jimmie Alford (pictured here with his wife, Maree Bullock) with the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award on October 2, 2012, for helping to reinvigorate the government watchdog organization.

Call of Duty Alford, the first in his family to attend college, initially thought he would go into the ministry. But he discovered his true calling when he worked as a counselor for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago at the Lathrop Homes complex on the North Side while he attended North Park University. “He found that his ministry was really working with nonprofits,” Bullock explains. After graduating, Alford joined the Boys & Girls Clubs full time. He rose up the ranks to become the youngest club director at the age of 24. He led the development of programs that tackled gang violence and helped bring a mix of new activities beyond sports, including arts programs and a radio station where children could produce their own radio programs.

Jimmie Alford enjoyed spending time with his family. From l.: Alan Bullock, Alford’s son; Alford; Maree Bullock, Alford’s wife; Collin Reardon, Alford’s grandson; Ann Bullock Reardon, Alford’s daughter; Sean Reardon, Alford’s son-in-law; and Joshua Mawioo Mutisya, Alford’s son.

Alford then went on to direct the fundraising activities of the Boys & Girls Clubs while earning his master’s degree in administration and organizational behavior from George Williams College of Aurora University. Forging a New Path By the late 1970s, Alford was ready to make a change that would set him on a broader path. From an office in his bedroom, he began planting the seeds for his consulting firm. In 1979, he founded The Alford Group with the mission of strengthening the nonprofit sector. The Evanston, Ill.-based firm helps nonprofits build their capacity while meeting their immediate organizational and fundraising goals. The firm conducts feasibility studies for organizations as well as offers services such as coaching and professional development of staff and volunteers, executive search assistance, and technology support. With offices in Boston and Seattle now, the company has grown to become one of the largest nonprofit consulting firms nationwide, having worked with more than 2,700 clients, including the Chicago Urban League, the Old Town School of Folk Music and World Bicycle Relief. Alford’s colleagues credit the success of the firm in part to how he strove to bring out the best from his team. “He was a patient teacher,” says Brenda Asare, senior vice president and Midwest division manager for The Alford Group. “He challenged us to raise our sights, achieve things greater than we thought would be possible.” Long-Term Commitment Alford stayed on as chairman of The Alford Group even after retiring in 2006 from daily operations. That included helping nonprofits like the Better Government Association, which presented him with a lifetime achievement award for his services to the government watchdog organization.

Jimmie Alford’s numerous fundraising campaigns spanned the nonprofit sector Nonprofit management expert Jimmie Alford started his consulting firm, The Alford Group, specifically to help nonprofit organizations improve their fundraising and services. Over the past 33 years, he was instrumental in helping thousands of nonprofits across the nation develop and carry out their capital campaigns. Here are just some of the nonprofits that Alford worked with to help raise the funds they needed to make an impact in their fields—and ultimately bolster the nonprofit sector.

He also never forgot those who helped him through the many decades in the nonprofit and philanthropic world. He remained a staunch supporter and advisor to the Boys & Girls Clubs. A decade ago, he helped develop and launch the Axelson Center for Nonprofit Management at North Park University to provide training and resources for nonprofit professionals. He also served as a university trustee and taught several graduate school courses and workshops. “Even though Professor Alford had five decades of experience with nonprofit organizations, he never stayed in the past,” says Jonathan VanderBrug, a North Park graduate student pursuing his master’s in nonprofit administration. “He was always

looking ahead, assessing and anticipating the future of the nonprofit sector and challenging us to do the same.” Alford not only left an indelible imprint on his students, but his extraordinary philanthropic achievements will live on in the nonprofit sector and metropolitan Chicago. “As an advocate for service and giving, [Alford] stood tall, revolutionized the field and made a difference day after day,” wrote Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a letter to the Alford family following Alford’s death. “He was diligent and determined to better the greater community. He was a stellar example of a Chicagoan.”

Jimmie Alford liked working at his computer with his grandson, Collin, on his lap.

“Our legacy is like a footprint on the beach with the high tide coming in; it will not last long. But for Jimmie, his legacy may last longer than most … his legacy does not bear his name, but yours.” – Rev. Phil Blackwell, senior pastor at First United Methodist Church at Chicago Temple, from his eulogy of Jimmie Alford 70

The Golden Years Maynard Marks helped improve the quality of life for the elderly in the Chicago region. Maynard Marks believed that the foundation to living well was rooted in a charitable heart as described in the Old Testament story about the gleaners. As the biblical tale goes, the farmers out of compassion left the edges of their harvested fields for those in need. Marks always held on to that lesson he learned. “You are to leave enough grain in your fields for the gleaners,” Marks said about the importance of giving. “Charity is a way of life. It is not something you do for a reason.” Philanthropy, indeed, was a guiding force in the life of this low-key but energetic and witty man, who passed away at age 100 on December 22, 2012. It inspired him to become a strong advocate for the elderly, contributing his time and money to a cause that hit close to home. Respecting Seniority With a mission to address the inadequate care for Chicago’s growing senior population, Marks and his wife, Elinor, spearheaded the charge in 1976 by establishing one of the first donor advised funds at The Chicago Community Trust. For more than 35 years, the Elinor and Maynard Marks Family Fund supported numerous organizations that address the pressing needs of seniors in Chicago. That included helping to set up the Chicago Five Hospital Homebound Elderly Program, a longterm home care model. The fund also contributed the largest single gift to the North Shore Senior Center to build its House of Welcome, a day care facility for Alzheimer’s patients. Marks, who owned several businesses, including a real estate firm, opened their fund at the Trust because he and his wife, who died in 1994, wanted to be able to continue giving even after they had passed away. “That’s the best memorial a person can have,” he said in an interview with the Trust in 1990. Marks’ three sons will now serve as advisors to the fund, working with the Trust to carry on their parents’ philanthropy. Cause and Effect Marks’ passion to support the elderly was sparked by his wife, a retired social worker and volunteer for senior programs. Elinor Marks co-founded the Highland Park Senior Center and helped the Family Service of South Lake County to develop a telephone

check-in system for seniors living alone. She cared for all the aged members of the Marks family. “Dad always insisted that ‘your mother was the real social worker in our family,’” says Tom Marks, one of his sons. “He clearly learned a lot by watching her in action all those years.” Elinor Marks was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in the early 1980s. During her illness, Marks joined a support group for caregivers at the North Shore Senior Center—one of the many for which he advocated and financially backed. He soon became a mentor within that group and eventually a peer counselor at the center to help other families caring for elderly loved ones—a testament of his gratitude and generosity, says Sandi Johnson, former executive director of the North Shore Senior Center, who first met Marks in the mid-1980s. “He had a real need to help others,” Johnson explains. “He impacted so many lives with his generosity, not just financially but with his spirit.” 2012 Annual Report

That’s why the attorney joined The Chicago Community Trust’s Professional Advisory Committee (PAC), a valuable resource that helps him keep up to date on the Trust and learn how he and other professional advisors can work with the largest grant maker in metropolitan Chicago to meet their clients’ needs. As a member of the PAC, Handler gets an inside look at how the Trust’s services, various giving vehicles and grant making expertise can create a satisfying philan­ thropic experience for donors. “It’s a good two-way street,”

says Handler, who heads the Trusts and Estates Practice Group at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. “The Trust wants to put the information in our hands, and I want to have it for my clients.” The Trust holds quarterly meetings to update the members about the Trust’s various initiatives, so they can see where the community foundation’s grant making may align with their clients’ charitable goals. These meet­ings also allow members to network with their peers in an informal setting, confer with the Trust on the latest charitable planning techniques and legislation, and share their clients’ thoughts and concerns. “It’s a great way to meet people who are very active in the Chicago charitable commu­ nity,” Handler says. “The Trust is a resource even for clients who aren’t looking to donate to the Trust but need assistance in accomplishing their charitable objectives. The Trust is a great resource for us.” As a member of the Professional Advisory Committee, David Handler learns about how the Trust’s services and grant making may enhance his clients’ charitable activities.

A Donor’s Story

Full Circle Joseph Pedott lends a hand to the Chicago nonprofit that helped him when he needed it the most.

“T he Trust helps philanthropic families like mine because it is a wellestablished and responsible community-directed nonprofit organization with a dedicated and hard-working staff.” – Joseph Pedott Joseph Pedott is the innovative advertising legend behind the Chia Pet and the Clapper, two of the most iconic products in American pop culture. But he navigated a rough road on his way to such remarkable success. On his own as teenager, Pedott received a much-needed helping hand from SGA Youth & Family Services, a Chicago nonprofit that helped set him on his path to success. Now he wants to repay the favor. Pedott recently opened a fund at The Chicago Community Trust to support the nonprofit as it assists struggling teenagers and young adults create better futures for themselves—the way SGA helped him. SGA, a nonprofit that provides services for at-risk youth in Chicago, will receive annual grants from the Joseph Pedott Family Fund at the Trust. Pedott established the designated fund specifically to support the scholarship and educational programs at SGA that help underprivileged high school students attend and succeed in college. “What I’m trying to do is to help kids that have too much baggage on them and are highly motivated to get into college,” explains Pedott, president of Joseph Pedott Advertising & Marketing, Inc. and Joseph Enterprises, Inc. “They have the ability and the aptitude but are struggling because of circumstances beyond their control. I want to give these students with cream-of-the-crop potential a helping hand so that one day they can become leaders and then give back to SGA and the community.” Overcoming Adversity Pedott knows from personal experience how unforeseen circumstances can seem daunting for a teenager without support. The Chicago native suffered from rheumatic fever at 11 and spent years bedridden at a convalescent home in Bartlett, Ill. His mother died of a cerebral hemorrhage when he was 13. At 16, he ran away from home after a dispute with his father and moved into a YMCA on the North Side. His situation seemed bleak until SGA stepped in. Then known as Scholarship and Guidance, the nonprofit provided Pedott with a counselor and money to help pay for his living expenses. “SGA was my lifeline,” says Pedott. “I was determined to get an education, but without that help from them, I’m not sure how I would have done it.” Pedott’s advertising career took off once he finished high school. As a full-time student at the University of Illinois

at Chicago, he and a fellow student started their ad agency producing television commercials for automotive and retail clients. Pedott used his share of the profits to pay his tuition. After graduating from college, he worked for an ad agency in Chicago for two years before moving to San Francisco in 1958. He started his own firm, Joseph Pedott Advertising & Marketing, landing local and national accounts. In the 1970s and 1980s, Pedott came across the products that would propel him into the annals of pop culture history. He purchased the Chia Pet and developed the Clapper, tweaking the products and creating their memorable commercials and catchy jingles. Today the Chia Pet and the Clapper are considered American icons. The prototypes of both products are part of the Smithsonian Institution’s archives and their accompanying documents are in the Library of Congress. Giving Back Pedott, 81, credits his extraordinary achievements in part to SGA, which helped him to finish high school and attend college. That’s why he has donated regularly to the nonprofit for years. However, he wanted to set up a designated fund at the Trust in 2012 to ensure that SGA would continue to receive his financial support for years to come. Given the Trust’s strong roots in the region, grant making expertise, and financial and administrative support, Pedott is confident in the Trust’s stewardship of his fund now and in the future. “The Trust is one of the oldest community foundations in the country and highly respected,” he says. “I find the Trust’s staff to be very professional, and, most important, when I’m not around, I have confidence that the Trust will follow my directions in the distribution and oversight of my fund.” 2012 Annual Report


Financial Highlights The Chicago Community Trust’s mission to improve the quality of life and prosperity of our region is achieved through the generosity of our donors. As of September 30, 2012, the Trust’s consolidated assets totaled $1.8 billion. In addition, during the fiscal year, the Trust received new gifts totaling $179.7 million and made combined grant commitments totaling $177 million.

Fund Types Donors may work with the Trust to create and contribute to one or more types of funds. Donors can shape charitable gift funds to meet their specific interests and objectives by using one or all of the basic fund types as building blocks. • Designated Funds At the time a designated fund is established, the donor designates a specific charitable organization or organizations as the perpetual recipient or recipients of the income from the fund. The Trust ensures that the designated recipients receive support as long as they remain in existence and continue to fulfill their intended charitable purpose. • Competitive Funds The Trust’s competitive funds are available to nonprofit organizations in metropolitan Chicago that serve the residents of the region. Organizations receiving support in the form of grants must have a 501(c)(3) status or fiscal agent before submitting a letter of inquiry. Based on a review of these letters, organizations may be invited to submit a full proposal. Competitive funds include the following: – Field of Interest Funds: Individuals and organizations may pool their charitable gifts of any size into a common fund that addresses an issue of importance to them and to the community. Income from these funds is distributed by the Trust in accordance with each fund’s specific purpose. – Restricted Funds: A donor may establish a fund dedicated to an area of concern to the community. These funds enable the Trust to respond to ongoing needs in specific areas. – Unrestricted Funds: Through unrestricted funds, donors enable the Trust to respond to the community’s most pressing challenges in creative and flexible ways. These funds provide some of the Trust’s most important resources capable of addressing the ever-changing needs of the community. • Advised Funds An advised fund may be established with a gift of $10,000 or more. It provides donors the opportunity to remain actively engaged in the grant making process. Advised funds are efficient alternatives to private foundations, may involve successor generations and may be endowed for perpetual giving. • Supporting Organizations A growing number of donors with significant charitable assets and a desire to have a more formal giving structure are establishing supporting organizations. As with advised funds, a supporting organization is an attractive alternative to a private foundation, providing significant tax benefits and grant making support from the Trust.

Trustees Committee and Banks Our relationship with Chicago financial institutions dates back to the founding of The Chicago Community Trust and continues to be a partnership with enduring richness. In 1915, Harris Trust and Savings Bank stood as the sole trustee bank charged with managing the Trust’s charitable assets. Over time residents began assessing their own personal giving and contemplated the charitable legacy they would leave the community. Individuals turned to the banks for assistance in leaving gifts in perpetuity, and the banks, in turn, looked to the Trust as a fellow civic leader. Today five financial institutions manage a large portion of the Trust’s assets. We are privileged to have such strong relationships with these banks and their leaders. The Trustees Committee, comprising five chief executives of these banks, appoints up to five members of the Executive Committee, approves other appointments to the committee and, according to the Declaration of Trust, “shall consult with and advise … in matters pertaining to the development of The Chicago Community Trust and public relations.” Following are the 2012 members of the Trustees Committee and Trustee Banks.
