Event Details




 The Joyce Foundation and The Dunham Fund
Discuss the Impact of
 Social Impact Bonds in Illinois


There is considerable buzz across the United States about whether a new “pay for success” model of financing, currently funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, studied by Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, and piloted in Boston and New York, could work on American soil.  It’s called a Social Impact Bond (SIB).  Stay ahead of the curve on this innovative new financial model and hear from three Illinois thought leaders on the subject. 


Matthew Muench
The Joyce Foundation

A Program Officer with The Joyce Foundation, which is an $800 M private foundation that supports the development of policies that address today’s most pressing problems while also informing the public policy decisions critical to achieving long-term solutions. 

Matthew's grantmaking is focused on helping adults acquire the education, skills and credentials needed to secure family-supporting jobs. I manage two program areas: efforts to engage business as a partner in solving the problem of adult un- and under-employment; and an innovation fund used to generate, develop and test ideas with the potential to positively disrupt adult education and training practices.


Carla Denison-Bickett
Chief Financial Officer
Carla came to The CARA Program in 2009 to serve as Director of Finance after six  years (2003-2009) as Vice President of Finance at Lehman Brothers Asset Management LLC.  Carla is a CPA and holds a MBA from the University of Chicago, which she completed in 2004. 

She has extensive management, reporting and budgeting experience and is responsible for the financial reporting, budgeting, accounting, and government contract management for The CARA Program. 




Ryan J.  Maley
The Dunham Fund

Mr. Maley is a Board Advisor at The Dunham Fund, the largest private foundation in the greater Aurora, Illinois area. Our goal as a philanthropic organization is to provide financial support to qualifying organizations that, like John Dunham and his family, are devoted to education, enterprise and community development — the foundations for a better tomorrow.

He is critical thinker who understands how to translate strategic goals to operational success. He has diverse experience in services and product business operations and has a talent for making rapid assessments of situational challenges and developing and leading the resulting plans. Ryan also serves as Director of Strategic Marketing for ZigBee Alliance, as well as Vice President of Global Inventures.
