THE STORY:

A Special Request to my friends and family!!

I’m participating in a 10 mile bike ride this summer to help raise money for a nonprofit organization that I’ve been a volunteer with since 2007. I think many of you know that the Executive Service Corps of Chicago has been a part of my life since I retired. It’s given me the opportunity to get to know and work with hundreds of talented men and women volunteers who have chosen to “give back” some of their time and talent to help those less fortunate than them.

 

This important organization’s mission is to enhance the overall impact of Chicago area nonprofits through professional, affordable consulting services, enabling them to better meet the needs of those they serve. These nonprofits could not afford this expertise on their own.


ESC, a nonprofit organization itself, has given me the opportunity to work with dozens of local nonprofits, helping them build stronger, better led, and more capable organizations. I’ve met amazingly dedicated and caring people. I’ve had the chance to see first-hand the impact they have on the lives of people they help. It’s been a life-changing experience for me. I’ve seen and experienced things that truly inspire me. I’m grateful to Executive Service Corps because they’ve given me the opportunity to help make a difference.


Your support helps ESC offer specialized and affordable consulting engagements for local charities. Over 200 trained, professional ESC consultants volunteer their time and talent to help nonprofits build their boards and strengthen their governance, find new sources of revenue, plan their strategic direction for service and growth, and coach or mentor staff and volunteers.


Please sponsor me in my 1st annual 10 mile bicycle ride. You can support ESC with your tax- deductible contribution. Any amount is appreciated, but please consider donating $5 to $10 per mile!


Thank you!!
R.J. Young

Executive Service Corps of Chicago is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. It was founded in 1978 by civic-minded corporate leaders in Chicago who wanted to offer up their time, talent and treasure to "give back" to the community.


These founders recognized that by sharing their knowledge, skills and experience with nonprofit organizations throughout the Chicago area, they could help these organizations be better equipped to serve the people and communities of metropolitan Chicago.

Donations that ESC receives helps pay for the expenses we incur to maintain a small office and staff that support and train our volunteer consultants. Our consultants have ongoing educational requirements that the staff helps provide, among other support functions.
