Check out a recent Partner spotlight!

Millennium Reserve Partners collaborate on urban redevelopment in the Calumet and southeast lakefront regions. As a collective, we are committed to:

  • Operating around shared values and goals
  • Leveraging existing and non-traditional resources – including financial, human capital, and knowledge – on behalf of shared projects
  • Spanning multiple constituencies, agencies, organizations, governmental bodies, and geographies, and inviting the participation of a diversity of partners
  • Seeking the active participation of business leaders and local communities

We welcome the participation of any prospective Partner who shares our core values for and seeks to play a role in this ground-breaking endeavor. If your organization, agency, program, or community supports the mission and goals of the Reserve but is not yet listed below, it is simple to join us as an official Partner.
