The Foundation manages more than $95 million in assets and has awarded more than $45 million in grants to not-for-profit organizations serving the residents of DuPage County and beyond since its founding in 1986. Most recently, in response to the COVID-19, the foundation began making grants available to support local not-for-profit organizations on the front line in providing critical support to those who had been most affected by the pandemic. Through three rounds of grants since mid-March, the foundation distributed a million dollars to support those organizations delivering food and emergency financial assistance, mental health services, access to healthcare, housing, technology to support virtual health and education.
