Civic Consulting Alliance:  Smart work.  Great city. 

donateCivic Consulting partners donate more than $12 million
In the past year, 229 foundations, firms, corporations, and organizations worked with Civic Consulting on dozens of projects across the region to make Chicago a great place to live and work. Three years in a row, our partnership has provided more than $12 million in pro bono services to the public sector.
For the first time since the recession started, business picked up significantly for many of our partners.  Nonetheless, their pro bono efforts continued through Civic Consulting, reflecting the extraordinary commitment of Chicago's private sector to our city's well being.
The high level of pro bono investment generated tremendous impact in each program: Affordability, Economic Growth, Education, Transit and Environment, and Workforce.
The Civic Consulting 2010 Scorecard demonstrates how our partners are helping to sustain Chicago as one of the world's most competitive regions.
