This fund provides scholarships to students pursuing a career in criminal justice or law enforcement.

Daniel Schindlbeck (1943-2004) was a graduate of Marmion Military Academy. In 1976, he received a master’s degree in criminal justice from Michigan State University.

He was a police officer in Aurora for twenty-eight years, reaching the rank of lieutenant before retiring in 1994.

He then joined the Kane County Sheriff’s Office for ten years and was serving as undersheriff at the time of his passing.

Mr. Schindlbeck was past president of the Kane County Chiefs of Police, member of the Illinois Chiefs of Police, Illinois Sheriff Association, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #14, the Illinois Police Association, Aurora Turners Club and the Batavia Moose Lodge #682.

Mr. Schindlbeck was survived by his wife, Janice, and three children.

Created in 2004, this fund became an endowment in 2005.

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.

…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.

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!

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.
