Come see what Young Philanthropists is all about! Our Kick-Off event is open to anyone interested in YP, a group that pools its annual membership contributions to award large, impactful grants to local programs that help children and youth.
This is the first of three YP events this year. The meeting will take place at Illinois REALTORS (arrive by 5:45 p.m. for brief remarks) for food, fun, philanthropy, and live music from the Levitt AMP Music Series taking place right across the street!
