Innovators Council

Chicago Ideas, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on generous philanthropic support in order to provide its dynamic programming at a nominal cost to 30,000 people annually. The Innovators Council is comprised of individual philanthropists and family foundations who share our belief in the power of ideas and who passionately invest for impact in Chicago and beyond.


We want to thank the current Innovators Council Members for their generous support of Chicago Ideas.
