It’s a tough decision… But you don’t have to make it. You don’t have to choose one organization to support when you choose Compassion. Through our grant program, your dollars are distributed to many organizations that are working to improve the entire community. Our mission is helping those in need with God’s love and compassion as our guide.
We provide grants–based on need, not creed–to nonprofit organizations in Kane, Kendall, and Western DuPage Counties. Last year, we significantly impacted 33 organizations by providing grants for necessary operating expenses and life-changing programming. We are funded by generous donations and fundraising events held throughout the year. We have very little overhead; the organization is led by a volunteer board of directors, staffed by a part-time executive director, and office space is provided by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.
