DuPage Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund Grants

The DuPage Foundation is actively raising funds for the COVID-19 Response Fund to support local notfor-profit organizations that are on the front line in providing critical support to those who have been most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The deployment of resources from this fund will remain flexible to ensure that it will support current needs as well as those that emerge as more hardships become evident.

Funds will be distributed on a rolling basis as needs and gaps are identified and as additional dollars become available to support grants.

Grant Amount

Grants awarded will be relative to organizational budget size. If we are unable to award the amount you request, we will continue to make efforts to try to connect you with other opportunities. 


As much as we value ALL of the local not-for-profits in DuPage County and know the critical role they play in making DuPage a wonderful community, it is not feasible at this time to support every agency that is providing important and valuable services and programs. Therefore, we have identified the following as our key priorities:

  • Emergency food and basic needs.
  • Interim shelter and housing.
  • Primary health and mental health services.
  • Utility and financial assistance.
  • Non-profit organization’s safety and technology needs to serve clients while sheltering in place.

Please note that these priorities may change as issues resulting from the COVID-19 crisis evolve.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • DuPage County 501(c)(3) organizations.
  • Assistance must be used to benefit DuPage County residents.
