Dunham Fund Celebrates 10 Years of Giving Back to the Community

During the last ten years, the Dunham Fund has grown to become the largest private foundation in the Aurora area while providing millions of dollars to fund programs and projects to effect positive change in the community. Funded by the estate of Aurora businessman, John C. Dunham, the foundation continues his vision to encourage innovation and collaboration in educational and community development.



Live Here, Give Here

Throughout the year, area service agencies are helping to educate our youth, shelter the most vulnerable, and provide resources to ensure a healthy, safe community. Now is the time to show your love! By supporting nonprofits in the our service area between Nov. 14 to 18, you’ll help them earn additional dollars from the Dunham Fund. Donate today at ILGIVE.com/organizations.
