Corporate Members

We are very grateful for the support of our Corporate Member, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.





Not only nonprofit leaders are committed to community improvement — we know that for-profit leaders also recognize that the health of our regional economy depends heavily on the ability of all residents to thrive. With the support and partnership of the business community, our capacity to convene leaders from all sectors to address significant community outcomes is greatly increased.

Corporate Members become partners with dozens of other agencies in our region, and we recognize your investment in several ways:

  • Refer people inquiring about professional services to your business.
  • Post your logo and a link to your webpage on our website.
  • Promote any training opportunities you may provide and/or your services in NICNE e-newsletters (reaching over 1300 people across northern Illinois every week).
