The Dunham Foundation is honored to support the many nonprofits who have provided much-needed services for those affected by the pandemic and the unintended consequences in its wake.
With these added challenges, our community partners have shown their strength and determination in supporting our neighbors in need, and we THANK YOU!
Area Nonprofits Score Big with the 2021 #GivingTuesday Campaign!
The Dunham Foundation is proud to support the local Fox Valley area service agencies during the 2021 GivingTuesday campaign. Thank you to area business partners and individuals who helped incentivize individual giving with matching dollars and peer-to-peer fundraising efforts.
Together, our community helped to raise more than $5.8 million since 2016, with $1.7 million raised this year that supports the Greater Fox Valley area nonprofits!
The Dunham Foundation and the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley collectively provided an additional $24,000 in Incentive Awards this year. Twelve eligible organizations’ names were drawn at random to receive a $2,000 Incentive Award at the 2021 GivingTuesday Virtual Celebration held on December 16th.
