Each year the Dunham Fund provides their annual report as a formal summary of the year’s events and donations. The Dunham Fund seeks grant applications from organizations that — like Mr. Dunham — encourage innovation and collaboration in educational and community development programs and projects to effect positive change in the Dunham Fund service area.
The Dunham Fund’s 2014 Annual Report highlights the foundation’s ongoing investment in a wide variety of innovative educational, community development, healthcare, and arts programs and social enterprise ventures that have resulted in positive measureable impact in the greater Aurora, Illinois area. The Dunham Fund is a community partner for “Innovation with Impact.”
The 2013 Annual Report highlights the Dunham Fund’s pursuit of Partnerships in Philanthropy in order to make our world, in the words of John C. Dunham, “a more comfortable, safer place.” The report features a number of new Partnership Programs that challenged other foundations, businesses, educational institutions, and social service agencies to combine resources and coordinate efforts with the Fund to make a greater positive impact on solving community problems.
