43rd Annual Faces of Philanthropy Awards Luncheon

Thank you to the talented, dedicated volunteers, sponsors, attendees, and our esteemed honorees, all of whom collectively made the 43rd Annual AFP Faces of Philanthropy Awards Luncheon an extraordinary event and one to remember!

We honored eight amazing individuals who represent the very best of our community: they are transformative leaders, diverse thinkers, eager trailblazers, and prominent philanthropists — each a shining beacon of possibility, change, and hope for Chicago. These individuals leave an undeniable footprint on the work we do in and around Chicago. They represent the best and brightest of Chicagoland’s philanthropists and fundraisers, and exemplify the common bonds that connect us in our work. They are our mentors and yes, even heroes.
