Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to support Coronavirus (COVID-19) response efforts. Past eligible expenses have been for financial assistance, shelter and housing, health, mental health, emergency food and basic needs, and non-profit organization's safety and technology needs. Grant funds must be used to benefit DuPage County residents.

DuPage Foundation will award a fourth round of COVID-19 Response Fund grants to support local not-for-profit organizations as they reimagine and reposition their operations. Over the past six months, organizations have encountered myriad challenges in response to the pandemic, yet the true spirit of the not-for-profit community has shone through with much-needed services and programs continuing to be offered.

DuPage Foundation awarded three rounds of grants from the DuPage COVID-19 Response Fund earlier this year to help organizations address the most immediate and basic needs of local residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, neither the crisis nor the needs associated with it have disappeared and many organizations have had to rethink the way they do business.

As organizations settle into a “new normal,”  a grant from the DuPage Foundation’s COVID19 Response Fund help adapt or improve the delivery of services and programs in a safe, effective and efficient manner.
