Borderbend is happy to be participating in the Chicago Community Trust's On the Table celebration! Jillian and Jon are hosting this On the Table get-together at their home on May 12th, and we're looking forward to the conversation about the arts and culture in Chicago. We intend for our conversation to focus on these issues -- philanthropy, community arts, public spaces, artist wages, neighborhood festivals, and the Chicago Cultural Plan.
From onthetable.com: "Inside each of us is the inherent drive to make an impact and leave a legacy.
"Every day, people are making 'good' happen. We call them philanthropists. Commitments – both great and small – made every day to strengthen communities and improve the lives of others are the essence of philanthropy.
"As a kickoff to The Chicago Community Trust’s Centennial, On the Table 2015 begins a yearlong campaign to celebrate everyday philanthropists – people like you, committed to doing great things to improve our community."
