Creating a culture of giving means more than the sharing of funds. To effect lasting, positive change, we must also take action and give of ourselves. That is how we will inform and inspire a legacy that passes from one generation to the next.
Whether the need calls for extra time, ideas, project materials or personal connections, we strive to fully support every effort we embrace to make a greater Chicago.

Belinda is responsible for seeking out volunteering opportunities for members and friends of Skender Foundation.
“Volunteering opportunities have always been an honor and the experiences I’ve had with Skender Foundation have provided me with many ‘Aha!’ moments. When I look into the eyes of those I am giving to, I can see their heartfelt appreciation and at that moment, I realize I have received so much more from them than they could ever receive from me.”
