community engagement

Supporting our local community is central to Miniat’s culture, and we are constantly seeking opportunities to give back and beautify our neighborhoods. Each year we participate in several events that benefit our communities, like food drives, toy drives, school supply drives, and an annual thank you lunch for our local police and fire teams, just to name a few.

In addition, we are long-time supporters of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Misericordia Heart of Mercy, organizations that seek to better the lives of children and those with special needs. We also partner with other great Chicago organizations that enhance the education and wellbeing of children.

One child at a time.

Our own humble beginnings have taught us that wellbeing, health and education are building blocks to success and that’s why The Miniat Family of Companies support community programs like By The Hand that allow inner city children to lead abundant lives.

Making a splash!

Through many different fund raisers, like our “Take a Toss at the Boss” dunk tank event, The Miniat Family of Companies and our employees have raised $1.4M since 1996 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Dreams achieved.
One child at a time.

As part of our Miniat Young Chefs program, we are proud to support organizations like Big Shoulders Fund, that provide academic opportunities and support for over 21,000 inner-city youth at 82 schools.

A lasting partnership.

For over 40 years The Miniat Family of Companies have gladly supported the mission and programs of Misericordia Heart of Mercy, an organization that supports the dignity and respect of those with developmental disabilities.
