The Jewish community of Metropolitan Chicago is vibrant, diverse and philanthropic. The area is a hub for innovation, technology and education.

For generations before becoming the Metropolitan Chicago Region, we were known as Women’s American ORT, led by dedicated, empowered women who invested deeply in their chapters and in the ORT mission. ORT was their primary – sometimes their only – philanthropic focus.

There are still countless women from Women’s American ORT who are as engaged and invested as they were in 1966.  The region has expanded its philanthropic diversity by cultivating male and female donors of all ages, in different geographical locations and with multiple interests. With our Business Leaders Luncheon and our developing advisory board, the Metropolitan Chicago Region is branching out to meet the crucial needs of ORT America and raise funds for the global ORT education priorities that positively impact thousands.
