    The Foundation will celebrate Community Foundation Week by holding its Annual Benefit Dinner on Saturday, November 15. The annual event will be held at The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus in Oak Brook. This event is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser and is held to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization and the invaluable contributions of our donors and other constituents who support our work. Additional information about the event may be found on the Foundation website, www.dcfdn.org. “This has been a banner year for the Foundation,” said David McGowan, CFRE, Foundation president. “We are growing in nearly every aspect of our work, which means that we can provide more grants to our partner agencies, which in turn means more for the people of DuPage County.” Community foundations represent one of the fastest-growing forms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation—large and small, urban and rural—that is advancing solutions to a wide range of social issues. Launched in 1989 through a proclamation by former President George H.W. Bush, the first Community Foundation Week included a congressional briefing about the work of community foundations throughout America and their collaborative approach to working with the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to address community needs. About The DuPage Community Foundation: The DuPage Community Foundation seeks to raise the quality of life throughout DuPage County by fostering philanthropy, connecting donors to area needs and building community partnerships. Based on the American virtues of volunteerism and philanthropy, the Foundation fosters a legacy of support for the people of DuPage County by making grants to not-for-profit organizations working in the areas of arts and culture, education, environment, health, and human services. Since its inception, the Foundation has built its endowment to more than $60 million and awarded more than $19 million in grants to not-for-profit agencies serving the residents of DuPage County and beyond. Established in 1986, The DuPage Community Foundation is a publicly-supported 501(c)(3) organization to which contributions are tax deductible. It was created to benefit the people of DuPage County and receives contributions and bequests into a permanent endowment from individuals, corporations, organizations and foundations wishing to make lasting contributions to the people of DuPage. The earnings on these funds are then used, in accordance with donor wishes, for the Foundation’s grantmaking and community leadership activities. For more information about the Foundation, or to arrange future media opportunities, please contact Joelyn Kott, marketing & communications officer, at (630) 665-5556, extension 19, or jkott@dcfdn.org.

  • A spiteful White House next on tap Nov 10, 2014 5:01 AM
    Make no mistake about it. The Republican landslide was a vote against President Obama’s neo-Marxism cloaked within an extremist liberalism. No thanks to the last six years of a leaderless Oval Office, our economy is improving. We’re the world’s leading producer of natural gas and fast becoming its major producer of oil. Capitalism isn’t the source of all evil as the left would have you think. Jobs are returning to America. Fracking is not the unforgivable sin after all. Sadly, now we can anticipate a spiteful White House being the pen-phone legislator of “no.” On a positive note, this election validates the Founding Fathers’ concept of a government defined by the accountabilities built into legislative, judicial and executive parts. Even an articulate empty suit can’t screw that up. Paul O. Bischoff Sr. Wheaton
