Shebik and her husband, Steve, have two donor-advised funds with the Foundation: the Shebik Family Fund for Basic Human Needs and the History DuPage Fund. The funds were established with the Foundation in 1996 and 2012, respectively, and the impact of their grants demonstrates the passion that the Shebik family has for issues and organizations in DuPage County.
