Don't Make the Same Mistake that 15,000 Illinois Nonprofits Made

This is a reminder that our first workshop starts Wednesday, October 1, 2014, at BUILD, Inc., located at 5100 West Harrison Street. The workshop will go from 10:00 am-11:30 am. We will help you avoid common mistakes made by even some of the more established organizations by providing an overview of the responsibilities of nonprofits in recordkeeping and reporting.

This is a reminder that our first workshop starts Wednesday, October 1, 2014, at BUILD, Inc., located at 5100 West Harrison Street. The workshop will go from 10:00 am-11:30 am. We will help you avoid common mistakes made by even some of the more established organizations by providing an overview of the responsibilities of nonprofits in recordkeeping and reporting. We will also examine how this information may be used by funders, the community and Guidestar. When you complete this session you will have a better understanding of how to use publicly available information to better position your organization in the philanthropic marketplace. Workshops are $25.00 each in advance and $35.00 each at the door. A $100.00 investment can literally save your organization thousands of dollars on the back end.

  • Valerie F. Leonard Lawndale Community Builder and Policy Analyst

    Those of you who run nonprofits and are politically engaged could particularly benefit from the first workshop. Not only will we discuss record keeping, but we will share what activities are allowed and not allowed with respect to lobbying and political education.

Presidential Library

Now that our jewel of Black history and culture, Bronzeville has been eliminated from consideration for the Presidential Library, of the four remaining contenders, North Lawndale is the only one born and developed by the community.
North Lawndale, as a community, developed its own bid and then established a partnership with the world renowned University of Illinois.
There are “North Lawndales” across this country, from Hawaii to New York. In this contest, we represent them all.
What can you do to spread the word?

Smart Meters

Recently I have had an installation of a Smart meter and while I was waiting to do a cost comparison I figured I would reach out to my neighbors to see if they had done some of this analysis on their electric bills already? I also wanted to see if there were any concerns related or incidents as early installation of these meters were known to cause fires, fines were threatened if refused, and billing issues had been shown to appear in other states.

Loud Block Party past midnight

Are block parties permitted to have live amplified outdoor bands playing past midnight in residential neighborhoods?

I'm wide awake because of the extremely loud block party going on well past midnight in Little Village right now, near Cermak and Albany. My neighborhood has had other block parties with live music. I've never heard it so loud before, and all other parties have wrapped up around 11 at the latest. I called 911 but don't expect anything to happen.

Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”
