The grants, which ranged from $2,500 to $20,000, were formally awarded and recipients recognized during the Grant Awards Breakfast on June 22, hosted by Trustee Emerita Betty Bradshaw at Glen Oak County Club in Glen Ellyn. “Earlier this spring, the Foundation was thrilled to surpass the $25 million mark in total grants awarded since its inception,” said Barb Szczepaniak, Foundation vice president for programs. “We are delighted to increase that figure by awarding more than $425,000 to support DuPage Health and Human Services agencies and their programs.
