Dear Friend of the Highland Park Community Foundation,

In October, we awarded the most money and distributed the largest number of grants in our history: $200,000 to fund 40 different programs and services that address the unmet needs in our community and enhance the quality of life for all Highland Park and Highwood residents! 
With these grants, we continue to change lives.

Yet, there are still many unmet needs – as evidenced by the fact that we received $145,000 more in grant requests than we were able to fund. The needs are real and they are great.

If you have already made a donation to support our annual fundraising campaign, thank you for helping us change lives! If you have not, please give as generously as you can today to further our efforts to improve people's quality of life and enrich our community. An anonymous local donor has generously authorized a $25,000 matching challenge grant to apply to donations made NOW!
