Rotary Foundation Centennial Roadshow

What “Doing Good in the World,” Really Means!

This year, A Rotary Foundation Roadshow presentation will be coming to you.  The District Foundation Centennial committee will provide the Foundation seminar during a normal club meeting time at 15 locations around the District.  This is your opportunity to be part of learning about “Our” Rotary Foundation and celebrating its 100 years of success. Registration is easy, just call or go on line and say you are coming. Costs are just the normal cost of a Rotary luncheon meeting.  Take advantage of this opportunity. It will be a good time to meet Rotarians from neighboring clubs as well as a time to learn more about your Foundation and why it, “Makes Rotary, Rotary.” Better yet, you get a make-up credit.

Solving Social Issues with Housing First Strategies


t: 312.878.1911


Mark Angelini is the President of Mercy Housing Lakefront (MHL), one of the largest and most innovative community development organizations in the Midwest. MHL has developed and manages 28 affordable rental properties enabling more than 5,000 people to live in hope. By completing construction of four new buildings and assuming ownership of another housing ministry, MHL will double in scale by 2017.


Mark grew up in the Little Italy neighborhood of Chicago, and has invested over 30 years in economic, community and real estate development and revitalization of Chicago’s communities. 


After beginning his career as the Executive Assistant for Economic Development to U.S. Senator Paul Simon, Mark served as the chief-of-staff for Ald. Gerald McLaughlin. He later worked at The Shaw Company where he contributed to a neighborhood revitalization effort when Sears, Roebuck & Co. moved their headquarters out of Homan Square. Today, nearly 25 years later, Mercy Housing Lakefront is renovating the old Sears & Roebuck building to serve as a service-enriched affordable housing residence for 181 Chicago families.


Mark holds a B.S. in Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and a M.S. in Engineering from Northwestern University.
