A Chance to Help the First Friday Club of Chicago

Global Day of Giving Takes Place this Year on Tuesday November 29, 2016

The First Friday Club of Chicago is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Since the founding of Giving Tuesday in 2012, millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

The First Friday Club was founded in 1986.  Our Mission has remained constant throughout the years, “ to provide a forum for men and women to make connections between work, faith, values, and issues that affect their daily lives”.  The lifeblood of First Friday Club is memberships. However, our memberships are down from prior years, and we would appreciate your support in helping us sustain our mission by (i) becoming a member, (ii) giving a gift of membership to friends or family, or (iii) if you are already a member, making a donation in any amount. (The amount for a membership ranges from $50 to $250. however any donation is appreciated). Those of you who are interested in furthering the mission of the First Friday Club of Chicago, may send a tax deductible gift this Tuesday (or throughout the upcoming weeks).  The First Friday Club is a 501(c)3 organization.

Please make your check payable to:
