Impact Investments

Six Chicago-area organizations will use $12 million in loans to train and employ adults with autism, support retail development in Pullman and along the 63rd Street Corridor, provide 300 North Lawndale residents with training and transitional jobs, expand the operations of a vertical hydroponic produce company, and build projects that support youth and families in underserved Chicago neighborhoods. The loans are only the first local investments from Benefit Chicago, an innovative collaboration delivering needed capital to nonprofits and social enterprises.
