The Big Shoulders Fund supports inner city Chicago Catholic schools - you know, the schools that help make kids successful and save tax-payers millions of dollars.
Chicago is a Catholic city and catholic city - Catholics comprise the largest demographic and universally help to make this city greater, safer and more dignified. Go to the list of directors for any 501(c)3 civic, educational or cultural organization and you will see the same names - Catholics. Chicago Jews and Catholics seem to dominate Chicago charitabale initiatives, in fact Chicago Jews have some of the broadest shoulders in the Big Shoulders Fund.
This year Josh Hale, Tom Zbierski and the great Jim O'Connor ( Little Flower Parish Alumnus and St. Iggy Grad) are hosting the 1st Annula Field BSF Day at De La Salle Institute.
Our first annual Field Day offers the unique opportunity to raise funds for scholarships, education programs, school, facility improvements, and faculty support while participating in fun events alongside students and faculty of Big Shoulders schools who benefit from your generosity. Make a difference in the lives of children in your community!
