    You are invited to join us for an afternoon of celebration as we honor those who have been part of making the nonprofit community in the western suburbs stronger than ever.

    Since 1986, the West Suburban Philanthropic Network (WSPN) has been dedicated to working with the area’s nonprofit community.  Each year, WSPN recognizes a number of people, businesses, foundations and organizations that provide so much to sustain and enhance the rich philanthropic environment that is fundamental to the quality of life in the western suburbs.

    This year, WSPN recognizes such individuals and organizations in a variety of categories.  We hope that you will join us in honoring these recipients by attending the 16th Annual WSPN Philanthropy Awards Luncheon.

    Tickets must be purchased in advance. Registration closes on May 11th!

    Individual and Outstanding Volunteer Tickets - $50 per person

    Sponsorships are available from $500-$5,000.


    Register with option "A" and when it asks if you're registering any Outstanding Volunteers as guests, click yes.  Then list their names in the box below that in addition to adding them as guests within your registration. 
    (If you are registering any Outstanding Volunteers and you don't list their names in the box and you only add them as guests, we will not know they are an Outstanding Volunteer.)

    What burning questions do you need answered regarding grants and foundations?  This program will be highly interactive in nature and encourage open dialogue between panelists and attendees.  

    Learn first-hand from the experts how two family foundations and your local community foundation determine their giving priorities, how they prefer to build relationships with the charities they fund, what they look for in appeals and proposals, what they expect and appreciate when they receive reports or make follow-up visits with your organization, and hear about their recently funded projects and how their funding processes work.
