The Foundation was honored to donate $5,000 to BUILD in support their mission to prevent at-risk youth from joining gangs as well as working with gang-involved youth to develop alternatives to this destructive lifestyle.

Naomi’s Heart Mission was granted $2000 in support of their mission to bring food, education and the word of God to the children of Santos City, Philippines.

Normal Moments is an organization started by a mother who lost her daughter to cancer and supports parents with critically ill children in the home, in the hospital and via web resources so that they can spend as much time as possible sharing the most normal moments possible with their children.  The Foundation proudly granted them $1000 to aid in that mission.

The Foundation continued to support the Kingdom School in Yucatan, Mexico with a $6,200 donation to Regional Reclaim Ministries. The Kingdom School is a safe haven for children of single parent homes which enables their parent to go to work, pursue a career or start a business while their children are safe, cared for and getting an education.  The donation will be used to complete the infirmary at the school including finishing the room, installing air conditioning, fixtures and furniture.

CASA Kane County was established in 1988 by concerned citizens, child welfare professionals and court personnel in response to concerns that the rights and needs of abused and neglected children were not being adequately addressed in court.  CASA volunteers now help all of the over 587 probate and abused/neglected children within the Kane County Juvenile Court system. The Foundation granted $2500 to CASA to provide an entire year’s representation for one child.  

$1000 was granted to NAMI of DuPage from the Foundation. NAMI DuPage was founded by a group of parents in 1985 as an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, a nationwide mental health advocacy organization dedicated to improving the quality of lives of people affected by mental illnesses.
