Forefront's 46th Annual Luncheon

Forefront's 46th Annual Luncheon

On June 10, Forefront invites you to join us for our 46th Annual Luncheon.

This year, we will present Equity, Philanthropy, and Cannabis: a timely conversation about the opportunities and complexities of advancing equity in Illinois’ recreational cannabis program, featuring:

  • Heather Steans, Illinois State Senator

  • Toi Hutchinson, Senior Adviser to the Governor on Cannabis Control

  • Edie Moore, Executive Director of Chicago NORML

The discussion will highlight the significance of this new policy for our philanthropic and social impact communities.

For 46 years, Forefront’s Annual Luncheon has been the premier gathering of Illinois’ social impact and philanthropic leaders. Please join us and be part of this vital conversation.

Luncheon tickets include a seated lunch, access to the event program, and an opportunity to connect with peers.

Early Bird tickets: $125 for Members, $200 for Non-Members (Early Bird rates end March 13, 2020)

As the only statewide association in the U.S. representing over 1,100 grantmakers and nonprofits, Forefront values your support as we collectively strengthen Illinois through our leadership and impact. All proceeds will support Forefront’s mission to build a more vibrant social impact sector by providing the most valuable, relevant and equitable resources to our statewide Members and stakeholders. To learn more, please contact Katharine Keller, Director of Corporate and Foundation Partnerships, at You may also access our Sponsorship packet here.
