Do you have an idea to positively change your community in Oak Park and/or River Forest?

Have you ever said to a friend, neighbor, co-worker or classmate, “What this community really needs is                 ”?

Are you looking for seed funding to launch your idea for community change?

The Entrepreneur Leaders in Philanthropy (ELP), a newly formed giving group of the Oak Park River Forest Community Foundation has opened a call for a Big Idea. They are looking for a transformative idea that will positively impact Oak Park and/or River Forest. Do you know an individual or a group who has been thinking of a big idea?  ELP is going to award $50K for a BIG IDEA!

The process is simple. Provide a short application due by or before Dec. 15. You do not have to be a 501c3 to apply, but the award does need to flow through a 501c3 organization partner. Please check the FAQ page for any questions on the application process.
