Since 2009, Invest For Kids has raised nearly $14 million to benefit 60 charitable organizations reaching over 80,000 children. The Co-Founders of Invest For Kids generously underwrite all conference expenses so that 100% of the funds raised goes directly to support the selected beneficiaries.

Women’s Initiative

We place significant emphasis on building the participation of women investment professionals in Invest For Kids and are proud to see a significant increase in participation and attendance by women in the Chicago investment community.

Our Women’s Initiative is focused on building the participation of women investment professionals in Invest For Kids. Since establishing the initiative in 2014, we have hosted six unique events outside our main conference focused exclusively on women investment professionals. As a result of this initiative, the number of women in attendance at our investment conference has quadrupled as well as enhancing the diversity of our speaker line up. We are committed to expanding this initiative in the years ahead.

The 6th Annual Event was held on May 29, 2019 and featured a discussion with leading women in private equity and venture capital.
