Welcome To The Dunham Fund

Welcome to the Dunham Fund, the largest private foundation in the greater Aurora, Illinois area.

This site is intended to help visitors learn about Mr. Dunham, the Fund he endowed and the types of positive, change-focused activities we support. We have included a grant application to make it easy for organizations to apply for funding.
