Raise money for Calahan Foundation, NFP

Edward & Shirley Calahan are philanthropists and founders of the Calahan Foundation, a non-profit organization 501(c)3 created in 2009 to inspire youth through college scholarships, college mentoring, and community outreach.  Each year the Calahan Foundation raises funds for annual scholarship awards to deserving high school students in the Chicagoland area. Scholarship recipients attend some of the top universities across the United States. 

The Calahans are also Chicago’s trusted voices on marriage and keynote speakers on business.  With over 35 years in marriage and business,  the Calahans have established themselves as a brand in assuring compassionate, quality care in funeral, cremation, and memorial servicing.  Both are licensed Illinois Funeral Directors and Embalmers. Since their inceptions, both businesses have made their mark and experienced greater-than-anticipated demand for its funeral arrangement services, “pre-need” planning, bereavement etiquette, funeral education, and as expert practitioners in providing large, high-profile funerals.  Over the years, the Calahan's have created over 400 jobs and mentored more than 250 mortuary science students and Entre-Morticians interested in the funeral business.
