Charitable Fund

Duly Health and Care’s Char­i­ta­ble Fund invests in solu­tions that improve the health of our com­mu­ni­ties. Togeth­er with our non­prof­it part­ners, we col­lab­o­rate to address the social needs and risk fac­tors that impact health beyond our clin­ic doors.

Our Impact

Found­ed in 2010, the Char­i­ta­ble Fund has grant­ed near­ly $4 mil­lion to sup­port non­prof­it part­ners with a focus on food secu­ri­ty, afford­able hous­ing and sup­port ser­vices, and access to health­care and com­mu­ni­ty well­ness.

Last year, in 2020, the Char­i­ta­ble Fund grant­ed near­ly $670,000 in total. So far this year, the Char­i­ta­ble Fund has grant­ed almost $375,000 to 34 non­prof­it part­ners (see list below). 

Over the past ten years, the Char­i­ta­ble Fund has given

Launched in 2019, the Asso­ciate Grant Pro­gram offers Duly Health and Care team mem­bers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to apply for small impact grants to sup­port caus­es that are close to their hearts but may fall out­side of the mis­sion of the Char­i­ta­ble Fund.

Join Us

Gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions from physi­cians, team mem­bers, com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers and busi­ness part­ners are the lifeblood of the Char­i­ta­ble Fund. Duly Health and Care cov­ers the admin­is­tra­tive costs of run­ning the Char­i­ta­ble Fund so that dona­tions can go direct­ly to non­prof­its serv­ing our community.

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.
