Over the years, WITS has built strong relationships with many foundations in Chicago and throughout the United States. Foundations provide tremendous support to our organization and are responsible for the advancement of many of our programs. In this section, we recognize all foundations who have recently awarded WITS over $5,000. While we can only list foundations in this category, we thank all of our partnering foundations for their continued support. For more information on foundations and grants, please contact development director, Asheley Smith.
