IN OUR COMMUNITY
At WWM Investments LLC, our connection to Chicago goes beyond providing wealth planning services for our clients. We are proud to support various non-profit organizations in the greater Chicagoland area. Through our voluntary efforts and/or monetary contributions, we have supported this mission of the following charitable organizations:
Erie Neighborhood House opened its doors to the people of Chicago 150 years ago, making it the oldest operating settlement house in the city. At its annual awards dinner, they celebrated this major milestone and their history of impact. WWM Investments was proud to be one of the sponsors of this event on March 5, 2020.
Proceeds from the evening supported services and programs that open doors and create opportunities for the people of our community.
Honorary 150th Anniversary Chairs included:
Senator Dick Durbin
Governor J.B. Pritzker
Mayor Lori Lightfoot
Each year DSCC serves and connects with over 4,700 seniors living in DuPage and Kane counties through home-delivered meals, well-being checks, friendly visits and many other critical services. Without these services, many seniors can lose their independence and, for many, the opportunity to live happily in their own homes.
The services that DSCC provides are funded by grants, donations and support from people in our community and events such as Aging Gracefully on November 19, 2019. Without this support, these much needed services and programs are at risk.

Since 2011, Rock the House events have raised more than $1 million for local Ronald McDonald House Charities.
