Spring is in Full Swing!


We are enthusiastic to announce our portfolio of 2013 Allowance for Good programs. We invite you to share this note with youth ages 13-18 (or their parents) who you think would be interested in advancing their global leadership development and philanthropic skills this spring / summer. 

All of this wold not be possible without your enthusiasm for our mission. We are indebted to YOU, for your immense support of our work. We hope you will consider investing in our newest programs with a gift this spring. It is the season of renewal, and we look forward to strengthening our commitment to advancing global philanthropic leadership among youth in Chicagoland. We hope you'll join us!

With gratitude,
Elizabeth and the Allowance for Good Team
