Since its founding in 1986 by Jerry C. Bradshaw, Brooks McCormick, and Mary Eleanor Wall, DuPage Foundation has granted more than $75 million to not-for-profits serving residents of DuPage County and beyond. It’s hard to imagine what our community would look like without DuPage Foundation. And the opportunity to build on that success continues as we enter into an unprecedented period over the next decade and a half which could see the largest generational transfer of wealth in history. If just five percent were earmarked for charitable giving, a massive influx of gifts could flow to not-for-profits as grants helping to raise the quality of life for all in DuPage County. Indeed, through its many grant programs, DuPage Foundation serves as the community’s philanthropic leader.
