In addition to the many charitable organizations which MDP actively supports, we are proud to have engaged in a partnership with Chicago Scholars, a local organization that has provided training and mentorship to more than 5,000 academically ambitious, first-generation students from under-resourced communities across Chicago. MDP’s partnership with Chicago Scholars is grounded in our commitment to offer mentorship and career guidance to students in the program, as well as provide support on the organization’s key projects. MDP is supporting Chicago Scholars’ development of a mobile application and technology platform, which will serve as a critical engagement hub for students as they progress throughout the program. MDP and its professionals also have made a significant financial contribution to Chicago Scholars, and will continue to support the organization and provide active engagement.
MDP’s relationship with Chicago Scholars was established with the support of A Better Chicago, a local venture philanthropy organization. At MDP’s request, A Better Chicago identified Chicago Scholars as an ideal partner to help us meet our objective to support a local organization with a meaningful engagement opportunity.
