On October 25, 2011, we gave away $42,000 to our Nonprofit Partners at a celebration in downtown Chicago!
This philanthropy was generated by a recent real estate transaction involving an IIC Real Estate Member and Urban Partnership Bank. Urban Partnership Bank is an FDIC-insured community development bank serving Chicago's urban neighborhoods. By working with an IIC Member, the bank generated $42,000 in charitable funding for eligible nonprofits. Through IIC, the bank truly made its deal make a difference.
We distributed these funds through a random drawing featuring 15 cash awards. Congratulations to the 15 IIC Nonprofit Partners selected to receive funding!
