Our History and Structure
Founded in 2010, the Charitable Fund was established by Duly Health and Care physicians in partnership with DuPage Foundation to provide a coordinated approach of obtaining contributions and giving.
The Charitable Fund operates as a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) with DuPage Foundation, which is DuPage County’s community foundation and philanthropic leader. DuPage Foundation provides the Charitable Fund’s 501(c)(3) status and processes our donations. DuPage Foundation also provides the application portal and infrastructure for the Charitable Fund’s community grantmaking program.
The Charitable Fund is governed by an Advisory Board comprised of physicians, team members, and community members. The Advisory Board meets quarterly to review applications and provide grant recommendations.
