The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley recently awarded a $5,000 grant to Mutual Ground.

The grant will be used to repair the shelter’s roof; it has needed repair for an extended period of time, but due to the recent economy and budget shortfalls, there were no funds available to begin the project.Thanks to the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley, the roof can now be fixed.

Mutual Ground is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization that provides services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Southern Kane and Kendall Counties, including emergency shelter.

For more information please call (630) 897-0084.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

Marianne Renner

Past Scholarship Recipient & Current Leadership Coach

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
