ESC's History

Since 1978, ESC has honed this effective model, building an unmatched knowledge center of topics in nonprofit and public agency governance, management, and operations.

ESC was founded by 19 of Chicago’s most eminent corporate leaders from companies like RR Donnelley and Inland Steel, who recognized the vast positive impact they could have on community needs by working together with nonprofit leaders. Since its founding, ESC has become a nationally recognized resource and the region’s largest nonprofit provider of capacity-building assistance for nonprofits and public agencies.
