Our goal is to brighten the glow of hopeful people and help them to shine in the world.

Founded in 2012 as a 501(c)(3) private foundation, Skender Foundation believes that all people should have access to resources and relationships that help them make good life decisions. We also believe giving should be fun and uniting. Each year in downtown Chicago, we host two prolific fundraising/awareness events that connect business professionals and charitable organizations in seeking positive change.

Equally important, we understand that just donating money isn’t enough. To sustain community education and wellness, we must also invest ourselves – our time, our care, our compassion and our ideas. Only by directly engaging positive change can we create a culture of giving and feel the impact of its rewards.

Mission: Empower and inspire mindful individuals and groups to achieve lifelong successes in education and wellness.

Vision: Perpetuate the legacy of giving through gifts, time and talent to those in need.
