who we are

A subcommittee of Skender Foundation, the Builders’ Board is a team of young, driven professionals with a passion for helping others achieve more through relationships, education and wellness.

 

The Builders’ Board comprises dozens of next-generation leaders working together to inspire positive, sustainable change in Chicago.

 
 

WHAT WE DO

We empower fellow board members to set and reach goals and, in doing so, realize that they too can make a difference for others. Through them, the spirit of giving grows.

Every Builders’ Board meeting offers opportunities to learn more about leadership, networking, fundraising and volunteerism. Members gain greater confidence as they develop new skills they can apply during board activities, such as promoting our annual event and seeking donors and sponsors.

We have full freedom to pursue and achieve our own fundraising goals. All proceeds are given to a chosen charitable organization that furthers Skender Foundation’s mission to enhance education and wellness in Chicago.

Each third Thursday of October, we host an annual fundraising event called Harvesting Hope to raise money for a cause of our choosing. Harvesting Hope encourages the spirit of giving among young professionals looking to create positive, sustainable change in Chicago.
