CHICAGO, April 29, 2016 – Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG), one of the world's leading financial groups, today presented the Institute of Cultural Affairs USA (ICA) with a $20,000 grant to help support the ICA's GreenRise Center, a 95-year-old Chicago landmark. 

Wendy Breuder, Co-General Manager of the Chicago Office at MUFG presented ICA President and CEO, Ted Wysocki with the donation, which will support pre-development expenses for the historic building located at 4750 North Sheridan Road in the city's Uptown neighborhood. 

"MUFG is honored to assist in the revitalization of the ICA GreenRise Center, and proud of our role in supporting initiatives that have a positive impact on low- to moderate-income communities in the U.S.," Breuder said. 

A classical revival-inspired building, ICA GreenRise houses a residential living community, a retreat center for non-profits, and 25 non-profit social service providers; among the organizations based at ICA GreenRise are the Heartland Health Outreach Community Clinic, and Sarah's Circle, a shelter for homeless and battered women. 

"This grant will enable ICA's GreenRise to be not only a sustainability hub for Uptown, Chicago's most economically and racially diverse community, but also an energy efficiency learning lab for community leaders throughout Chicago," said Wysocki. 

With offices located on West Monroe Street, MUFG provides an array of financial services to individuals, small businesses, middle-market companies and major corporations in Chicago and across the Midwest.
