DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund
DuPage Medical Group (DMG) is actively involved in philanthropy and community service as a way of giving back to the community in which we live and work. As part of this effort, the DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund was established to provide a coordinated approach of obtaining contributions and giving.
The Fund seeks out community and health partners that serve those in need, particularly in the areas of food, shelter and healthcare delivery. In addition to providing financial support to these organizations, the Charitable Fund provides in-kind donations, such as food, toys, coats and books. Volunteer service is also a key component of giving. Financial contributions are extended by physicians and staff taking a hands-on role in helping these organizations.
