Linda J. Havlin Leadership Legacy Sponsorship Fund

The Linda J. Havlin Leadership Legacy Sponsorship Fund creates sponsored memberships of $1,000 each in Impact Grants Chicago for young women with leadership potential who otherwise would not be able to participate due to financial constraints.

This sponsorship fund has been established in honor of Linda Havlin, a founding member and valued part of the leadership team of Impact Grants Chicago, who passed away tragically on May 9, 2019. If you wish to make a donation to this fund, please go to the Give a Gift page and complete the donation form, adding “Linda Havlin” on the “in memory of” or “in honor of” line.

Linda’s family will be notified of all donations made to the fund.
