Investor Spotlights

LISC Chicago’s mission to make neighborhoods stronger and healthier would be impossible to achieve without the financial support and thought leadership of a variety of corporations, foundations and government agencies. To acknowledge their essential contributions, LISC Chicago is inaugurating a series of short videos about those organizations, their interests in Chicago neighborhoods and their reasons for investing with LISC.

The first Investor Spotlight focuses on U.S. Bank and Marsha Cruzan, the bank’s Chicago market president.

U.S. Bank is a key supporter of LISC in 10 metropolitan areas across the country: Chicago, Cincinnati, Duluth, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area and the Twin Cities. During the last 30 years, U.S. Bank has invested more than $570 million with LISC.

In Chicago, U.S. Bank’s recent contributions have totaled $140,000, providing support for the digital skills training within the Centers for Working Families and for LISC’s core work providing neighborhoods across the city with the resources they need to become healthier and stronger.

U.S. Bank has helped LISC Chicago in other ways, too, including Senior Vice President Betty Latson’s service as a member of the nonprofit’s board of advisors and through its longtime leadership-level engagement with the Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards.
