  • Events


“The most rewarding part about being a Fellow for Life is getting to meet so many other people in related disciplines who are equally committed to working with the underserved.”
-Emily Hendel, 2003-04 Schweitzer Fellow

Fellows for Life at the 2013 Schweitzer Leadership Conference

Since 2006, the Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows Program has provided programming for our "Fellows for Life," alumni of the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship living in the Chicago area.

Fellows for Life, Support Schweitzer and Double Your Impact!
The Advisory Council has pledged to match up to $5,000 of donations made by Fellows and Fellows for Life. We’re currently at $3,335. Will you help us by making a donation? No gift is too small—it will all help us get the full match! You can give online here or email for a donation envelope. Will you help us get to $5,000?
