Chuck Self says his two loves in life are his family and serving his community. The Village of Harrison resident made his home in the Fox Valley eight years ago, and recently retired after a 40-year career in investment management.
“I’m not slowing down though,” laughs Self, who now has more time to pursue his passion for philanthropy around education and literacy, social welfare, church giving and other community projects. “I think I have a responsibility to help fund causes. Retirement means more time to serve a robust society for all. I’m doing my part.”
Self keeps busy volunteering and serves at the Community Foundation as a board member and on the Development Committee and Investment Committee. This summer, Self became one of our newest Himebaugh Legacy Circle members when he adjusted his estate plans, providing for an unrestricted gift to the Community Foundation’s Community Vision Fund to be named the Chuck Self Community Fund.
The Himebaugh Legacy Circle recognizes those who have made plans for their favorite charitable causes through a bequest or similar deferred gift to the Community Foundation.
“I trust the Community Foundation to determine where the biggest needs are, and which projects can benefit from my legacy at the end of my life,” Self said.
