The Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LBTQ) Giving Council of the Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW) is proud to host its 3rd Annual International Women’s Day Dance on March 4, 2017. Over the past two years, we have successfully revived this Chicago tradition, bringing together members of the community and allies from across the city to raise over $5,000 a year. All of these dollars were given back to the community in the form of grants. We have an ambitious goal this year: to raise $10,000.
Community support and unity is more important now than ever. Join us to celebrate women and help us raise funds to provide women and girl-identified people access to healthcare and information, freedom from violence, and economic security!
