We’re excited to announce three distributions to three fantastic Nonprofit Partners. Here, I’ll be profiling each of the nonprofits chosen to receive funds generated by a recent IIC transaction.

Thanks to IIC Member Michael Pink of MAP Real estate and his client S. Michael Rummel of Rummel and Associates, these nonprofits will each be receiving $1,175 in free funding.

The first Partner to receive $1,175 is Boy Scouts of America, Northeast Illinois Council. The Northeast Illinois Council serves 376 Scouting units, chartered to community organizations and corporations across Lake County and Northern Cook County.  Membership stands at an impressive 17,318 and includes a spectrum of ages, from Cub Scouts to Life Long Learning participants.

In 2010, the Scoutreach program enabled 572 boys to experience the fun of scouting through programs at their schools. Scoutreach strives to make Scouting accessible to all young people, regardless or their background, neighborhood, or economic circumstance.

The Northeast Illinois Council also demonstrated outstanding service in 2010, with Scouts contributing roughly 112,000 hours to the community. The Scouting for Food program also raised a record of 78 tons of food for the needy.

Congratulations to Boy Scouts of America, Northeast Illinois Council!
