Forefront is the nation’s only statewide membership association for nonprofits, grantmakers, public agencies, advisors and allies.

 

Foundations invest a great deal of thought and effort into maximizing the impact of their grants – and are now exploring ways to use their non-grantmaking funds to amplify their impact through banking relationships, investment holdings, and program-related investments. Forefront recently hosted Urban Partnership Bank along with other local institution leaders for a Grantmakers Finance Roundtable to give Chicago practitioners some new ideas about “doing well and doing good."

"Urban Partnership Bank's lending focus in Chicago and Detroit's underinvested neighborhoods shows the bank's commitment to investing for impact."

Webitects is a Chicago-based digital agency providing custom-tailored websites and applications for organizations and situations where an off-the-rack approach just won't do. They've worked with The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago River Edge Ideas Lab, Regional Housing Solutions, Wikipedia, and currently work with Mighty, a company with which they found natural synergy. 

"We've been a business client of UPB since its day one, and happily work with many mission-driven organizations in Chicago and across the country. We love the fact that UPB supports local businesses in under-invested areas and industries. Building digital experiences for the UPB community to know this impact is an experience we're excited to have as a UPB client, too." says Billy Belchev, Webitects President.

According to Webitects Engineer Morgan Young, "Webitects is where I can be tech focused and community focused, both of which are important to me in the work I do, the career I'm building, and the life I'm living."
