The Foundation was thrilled to celebrate six of our dedicated volunteers at Giving DuPage's Volapalooza, a county-wide recognition of volunteers. We appreciate the service of these volunteers and all others who generously give their time and talents to the Foundation and our area's not-for-profits.
The DuPage Foundation is pleased to welcome back Joan S. Morrissey of Wheaton to the Board of Trustees! Morrissey most recently served as a Trustee Emerita following her initial Trustee term from 2006 – 2015 and has remained actively involved on multiple Foundation committees.
Bright & Early DuPage recently awarded $335,000 to support the work of six local early childhood collaboratives and the DuPage County Early Childhood Collaboration (DECC). One goal of these grants is to help build systems that increase the number of children who are ready to succeed when they enter kindergarten. But what does this really mean? DECC Program Director FaKelia Guyton explains.
