giveNkind- Helping a Nonprofit Find a Home at Dayhouse



giveNkind is helping manage a new co-working space grant provided by Dayhouse Coworking. Dayhouse, opening autumn 2018 in downtown Highland Park, is granting a year-long residency to one 501(c)(3) organization. Dayhouse offers both open and dedicated workspaces, with options for private offices, quiet spaces for meditation and yoga, concierge service, and even childcare in a soundproofed room. Built with creativity and collaboration in mind, Dayhouse connects a community of do-ers, extending a special reach to local charities with their Nonprofit Workspace Residency.

“Supporting nonprofit organizations has always been a high priority for me,” says Jen Luby, founder of Dayhouse Coworking.  “As we open a new coworking space in Highland Park, it’s a great opportunity to give back to the community. The Workspace Residency is ideal for a nonprofit on the cusp of exponential growth, and with the benefit of a both professional space and an instant business network, they’ll be able to reach their goals.”

Illinois has over 36,000 registered nonprofit organizations, many operating as kitchen table organizations, passionately serving their communities on a shoestring budget. With a place to call home, hold meetings, and be part of a business collaborative, the Residency recipient will have the space and support to move their mission forward by leaps and bounds. The Residency is open to registered 501(c)(3) charitable organizations and includes a dedicated desk, WiFi, mail and package reception, customized business coaching, and more.
