Code Nation is thrilled to share that our Chicago region has been selected as a beneficiary for the 2022 Invest for Kids Conference! Invest for Kids (IFK) is dedicated to supporting highly effective local nonprofit organizations that serve Chicago area youth from disadvantaged communities—well aligned with Code Nation’s operations and priorities. Their annual investment conference features presentations from well-known investment managers on their market views and best ideas, bringing together professionals across the financial services, hedge fund, private equity, and real estate industries. 100% of the proceeds from the conference are donated to a new cohort of nonprofit organizations each year who support Chicago’s young people, with an average grant of $200,000 per beneficiary!
We’re honored to be selected and in the company of other inspiring and impactful Chicago-based organizations: Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, One Million Degrees, Chicago Collegiate, Children’s Research Triangle, The BLOC Chicago, HEAR Scholarship Foundation, and Mikva Challenge IL. Since 2009, Invest for Kids has donated more than $16 Million to over 70 high performing organizations.
With IFK’s generous support, our Chicago team will be able to accelerate its growth. We’ll continue to create greater access to careers in technology for even more young people who have been historically excluded from the field, creating pathways to economic mobility and fostering a more equitable Chicago.
The 14th Annual Invest for Kids Conference takes place on November 1, 2022. Keep up with @itscodenation on social media to stay up to date about our participation in the event and register here to attend in person.
