August Let­ter from the CEO

Dear Friends of KYC,

For the first time in two years, I have the plea­sure to report that the state of Illi­nois has a bud­get! Passed in the first days of July, leg­is­la­tors from across par­ty lines came togeth­er to pass a bud­get plan for our state, over­rid­ing Gov­er­nor Rauner’s veto. We’re thrilled to take one more step toward ensur­ing con­tin­ued sup­port of Illi­nois’ most vul­ner­a­ble residents.

Although an impor­tant step in the right direc­tion, much is still unknown in the finan­cial future for the state. At the fed­er­al lev­el, changes to the Afford­able Care Act con­tin­ue to be under scruti­ny and debate. At KYC, we’re keep­ing a keen eye on both of these land­scapes, rec­og­niz­ing that our clients are acute­ly impact­ed by changes pro­posed at both the fed­er­al and local level.

This month, we were proud to host our 30th Annu­al Golf Out­ing at Poplar Creek. We delayed this month’s newslet­ter by a few days so we could share pho­tos from this year’s event, so please be sure to check them out. We’re so grate­ful for all the gen­eros­i­ty of every­one who joined us and the count­less sup­port­ers who golfed, vol­un­teered, donat­ed, and cel­e­brat­ed KYC. If you missed it, save the date for our Fash­ion Show: Novem­ber 4th at The Seville. As friends of KYC, your pres­ence makes every event more spe­cial and mean­ing­ful for our organization.

In the mean­time, please take some time to check out the rest of the infor­ma­tion in this month’s newslet­ter and keep vis­it­ing our new web­site. We’d love to hear what you think!

Until Sep­tem­ber,

Susan E. Cowen

Pres­i­dent & Chief Exec­u­tive Officer
