Rogue’s mission is to create a nonprofit philanthropub dedicated to providing alternative resources for grossly underfunded I/DD services in the state of Illinois.
Rogue Philanthropy Non-Profit Catering & Events. Want to give back? It's as easy as eating & drinking!
Rogue Philanthropy launched in late 2013 to raise funds for local grassroots non-profits in the Chicago area. Founding member Dave Gebhardt decided to take action after seeing his wife struggle to keep one of Chicago’s most innovative vocational programs for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities running. Due to the states cuts in funding and a recession that has significantly lowered donations, great organizations like these must operate in crisis mode.
After realizing that in a downed economy the first thing people cut from their budgets is giving, yet alcohol sales go up, he decided there must be a way to make sense of this reality. The answer was to open Chicago’s first not for profit pub. A "Philanthropub" if you will.
To fund this idea he has put together a team of service industry professionals to host underground dinners and cocktail parties.
