A Note From Our New Board Chair Esther Barron

The Coleman Foundation has been dedicated to Chicagoland communities since 1951. I am very proud of this legacy and the lasting and continuing impact the Coleman Foundation has had in Chicago.  I also recognize that our work requires consistent reflection and am committed to listening to and serving an even broader and more diverse community.  It is a serious responsibility to chair the board at this critical moment in the world where there is urgent need for support and change.  With respect for all of the work we have done thus far and optimism for what is possible in the near future, I am grateful for the privilege and opportunity to help shape the Coleman Foundation’s next chapter of philanthropy.
