Finding the best method for matching corporate and individual donors with the right organization is what the South West Suburban Philanthropic Network is all about.
Started just three months ago, the organization already has about 50 members representing nonprofit and not-for-profit organizations that serve residents of Will, Kendall and Grundy counties.
The main purpose of the organization is to provide support to professionals involved in philanthropy and fund raising, said Michael Hennessey, president of the network and president and CEO of the United Way of Will County.
