The event will be held at Whrilyball, 1825 W. Webster Ave. Chicago, IL 60614

The Sports Philanthropy World Congress will consist of five panels and presentations on a variety of sports philanthropy topics including: fundraising, board development, donor engagement, strategy and vision, program creation and impact measurement. The Sports Philanthropy World Congress was launched to bring together the best minds in sports philanthropy, allowing participants to share their knowledge, ideas, vision and passion. Consisting of five high level panels, this one-day event will host discussions on the challenges faced by sports non-profits and will provide the resources and strategies to help them improve their impact in the community. 

“Angela has a strong record of providing high-level guidance and strategy to sports organizations as well as professional athletes. That experience gives her the ideal perspective to help our attendees and organizations understand how they can leverage relationships with professional athletes to make a greater impact in their communities.” said Roy Kessel, founder of the Sports Philanthropy Network. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be the keynote speaker for this incredibly impactful conference,” said LaChica. “I have spent most of my career working with professional athletes and sports organizations and love both learning from others as well as sharing my experiences and best practices with an audience that will use the power of sports to create real change in their communities.”

“Having worked in the sports industry for over 20 years, I have seen the power that sports have to make a positive impact in the community. Sports philanthropy drives social change, impacts underserved communities, breaks down barriers and fights for social justice. We believe that by bringing together the leaders in the sports philanthropy industry, we will facilitate greater communication, collaboration and interaction among these amazing organizations.  We want to be able to connect them with the resources they need to grow and thrive.” said Kessel.
