Where We Fund

When John C. Dunham created the Dunham Foundation, he decided on a prescribed service area, which reflects the area made up of the communities that encompass the “Aurora Area.”

More specifically, the Dunham Foundation gives preference to applicants located in its “Service Area” which includes Kane, DuPage, and Kendall counties. Even more specifically, the area bordered to the north by State Route 38, to the south by US Route 34, to the east by State Route 59, and to the west by State Route 47.

This geographic area is referred to as the “Aurora Area” or the “Service Area” in all related Foundation literature and applications.
