Uncharted’s Impact

Connecting the U.S. and Canada

In this first US edition of the Fogo Island Dialogues, three speakers considered the dual systems of art and money, and the power and pitfalls of both in shaping and rebuilding communities.


A high school experiential learning program, an unlikely trip to the Arctic and the power of song. Here’s what happens when two Chicago youth set off on a life-changing journey…

Run for Something

In April, Uncharted convened nearly 100 guests to support Amanda Litman, RFS Co-Founder, and the crucial work her organization is doing.

Chicago Media Project

Uncharted believes that documentary film making has a unique ability to speak truth to power. That is why Uncharted is proud to support the Chicago Media Project (CMP), a member-based philanthropic community of documentary film lovers who believe in the power of media to bring about social change.

14×48: Quién Manda

Art as a driver for dialogue is one of our passions here at Uncharted. That’s why we’re proud to support the work of Giovanni Valderas and the 14×48 project. Their newest installation, “Quién Manda”, towers above the intersection of 149th Street and Grand Concourse in New York City.

Relationship Building

Uncharted hosted a private salon dinner where 14 Chicago leaders joined together with Mark Fisher, President, Council of the Great Lakes Region, and Canadian Consul General John Cruickshank for a thoughtful discussion about the importance of the Great Lakes region.

Exploring the Uncharted

Uncharted believes that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and the best type of education for our future leaders is through experience. That’s why Uncharted’s proud to support Students on Ice (SOI), a Canadian nonprofit that takes youth from around the world on life changing journeys to the Polar Regions.

Cooperative Philanthropy

Uncharted cares deeply about strengthening Chicago, and that begins with empowering Chicago’s youth, regardless of what neighborhood they call home. Embarc Chicago shares these beliefs, and that is why Uncharted is proud to support Embarc as it continues to grow in our hometown.
