The DuPage Foundation is thrilled to announce the first round of grant recipients from its COVID-19 Response Fund. Grants totaling $300,000 have been awarded to 21 DuPage County not-for-profits.

“In reviewing the grant applications, the needs are incredible,” said Barb Szczepaniak, Foundation Vice President for Programs. There are so many people whose lives have been turned upside down as a result of this pandemic and our local not-for-profits are doing yeoman’s work to support them. To date we have received 69 applications totaling more than $1.3 million which really reflects the need in our community. The Foundation will continue to do our part by securing financial resources and deploying them to the organizations that are directly assisting our DuPage neighbors.”
