The Metropolitan Chicago Region of ORT America is an active, thriving section of 2,000 donors. One of the ways our fundraising goals are achieved is through two major events: Our book and author luncheon, Lunch with a View, and our autumn event, ORT = Technology + Education. We continue to develop our region by cultivating new constituents, such as younger supporters in our Next Gen group, and from within the Chicago professional community. Our goals are to respect our past and expand as a major gifts fundraising region. We are proud of the success of our region and for producing many of the leaders who serve on both the national ORT America board and on the World ORT board of directors.
“ORT matches my personal priorities of education, Israel, Jewish community and helping those in need. On a recent ORT Mission to Israel I saw how our fundraising efforts in the Chicago region are satisfying those priorities. I learned how ORT is meeting the educational needs in the communities it serves and I met students who can look forward to brighter futures and successful careers, because of ORT.”
