#ILGive 2019 Dunham Fund Incentive Awards Announced

Nonprofits in the Dunham Fund service area scored BIG with donations during the #ILGive 2019 campaign. More than 2,000 donors generously contributed over $954,824 to approximately 85 Aurora area service agencies. Earlier this year, the Dunham Fund provided marketing workshops to help local nonprofits become prepared for this fundraising event. Along with the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley, the Dunham Fund provided an additional $40,000 in incentive awards this year.
