An investment in MPC is an investment in our region’s future

According to a Nov. 2 Reuters article, the Midwest economy is in a “fragile recovery,” following many months of economic upheaval.  Our local communities have been battered economically as well as socially.  As we look to 2010, business and civic leaders will continue to face unprecedented challenges to remain viable and competitive.

We need to accelerate this recovery, but this will require vigilance and creative action.  MPC is passionately committed to Chicagoland’s diverse communities and the region’s prosperity, whether the need is innovative public-private solutions, infrastructure investment, or neighborhood stabilization. 

Please consider a year-end, tax-deductible contribution to MPC that will help keep these issues on track, as well as provide leadership and action.

MPC focuses on core issues such as water, transportation, housing, and others that are critical to our communities’ sustainability, the region’s viability, and our residents’ quality of life – and has done so since our founding 75 years ago.
