Building a better community together

Our Advisory Council engages participants in giving back to their
community through planning events and sharing ideas.

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a group of Center for Independent Futures community members who support our mission through fundraising and awareness efforts. In addition to planning fundraisers and other events, the council supports the Auxiliary Board in planning SPARK every year. Members meet monthly to share ideas, collaborate with the Auxiliary Board, and contribute their gifts and talents to the community. For more information, contact us at (847) 328-2044 or
