Women In Networking (WIN), a committee of the Kankakee County Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to present a check for $10,000 to the Community Foundation. The funds will be used for college scholarships for women who live or work in Kankakee County and who are retraining or continuing/finishing an education at an institution of higher learning in the State of Illinois.

The funds were raised through personal donations and WIN Executive Committee fundraisers throughout the year.

WIN was developed and created by a group of women who strive to support the Kankakee County Community. In November of 2011, a vision was set in place by a steering committee to have networking and professional development opportunities available to all women, regardless of one’s stage in life.

WIN’s Mission is “To empower professional and personal relationships for the development of women through specific programming and service opportunities.”

WIN holds a monthly luncheon (second Thursday) event to foster professional and personal relationships for the empowerment and development of women through specific programming and community service opportunities. All events are held at the Kankakee Public Library, 4th Floor Conference Room.
