We Are All In This Together Display a Sign of Unity

Physically, we may have to be apart, but we are all in this together. Show your support for your neighbors, friends, and community!

Download and print a pdf of an All In This Together sign (available here in English and Spanish), decorate, and hang it on your window or door.

Then spread the word so there will be signs everywhere. Seeing them on windows or doors will build a sense of solidarity and make our community stronger.

Please also post pictures of your windows and signs and send them to us at info@hpcfil.org! See more photos below! #InThisTogether #HPCF #OneCommunity.

After Having to Take Two Years Off, We Were Finally Able to Gather Once Again, and Boy Did It Feel Good!

Thank you to everyone who joined us as we Gathered for Good at Binny’s this past Friday or who supported our event through a sponsorship, raffle ticket purchase, or donation.

We feasted, sipped, and celebrated all the good in our community (as well as some winning numbers!). We also honored Nancy Mills for her exceptional service to our community and beyond.

Funds raised from the event will support our 2022 annual grants for which we have received close to $975,000 in requests. It’s not too late to help us make a difference in the lives of children and adults throughout Highland Park and Highwood.

Great communities are created by people who give where they live or work – lifting each other up and caring for each other with acts big and small.

For 30 years, the Highland Park Community Foundation has supported and celebrated the many great nonprofit organizations that serve the Highland Park-Highwood community by addressing residents’ needs. To help us celebrate our 30th anniversary, we want to spotlight our community members of all ages, businesses, school staff, and city employees who “give where they live” by promoting kindness and answering Dr. Martin Luther King’s call for service.

As previously announced, when the Highland Park Shooting Response Fund closed, we distributed $5.8 million, 100% of the funds donated, to assist families of the victims who were killed, victims who were physically injured, and nonprofit organizations serving the needs of victims and the community following the shooting.

We also opened a second fund, the Highland Park Shooting Recovery Fund, to accept donations that would be distributed as grants to nonprofits that are addressing continuing needs for mental health and other services resulting from the shooting.

Through the generosity of donors to the Recovery Fund, the HPCF was recently able to distribute $367,000 to support the work of 15 organizations that are providing services for impacted members of our community.
