Community Impact Grants

In 2024, DuPage Foundation’s Community Needs Grant Program has been renamed to Community Impact, underscoring the Foundation’s commitment to delivering robust, coordinated impact focused on improving and enriching the quality of life for our community and its residents.

Beginning in fall 2024, grants from the Program’s arts & culture grant category will be awarded under the banner of DuPage Foundation’s Arts DuPage initiative. As our community’s champion for the arts, Arts DuPage supports, promotes, advocates, and distributes grants for the arts throughout DuPage County by stimulating engagement and investment in our vast cultural landscape.

View our most recent past spring and fall Community Impact (formerly Community Needs Grant Program) grantees. During two grant cycles each year, applications are accepted from local not-for-profits serving the DuPage County community in the following areas:


  • Health & Human Services


  • Education
  • Environment
  • Animal Welfare

Grant Guidelines and Application:

Organizations may submit one application (Community Impact Grant Application or Community Impact Mini-Grant Application) per calendar year.

First-time applicants should read the Foundation's grant guidelines and are strongly encouraged to call or email Barb Szczepaniak, vice president for programs, to determine eligibility before applying.
