VNA Health Care Endowment Fund

Established 1993

VNA Health Care

VNA Health Care has provided services to the Aurora area since 1918.

It originally was known as the Aurora Child Welfare Clinic Association, established to care for crippled children in clinic and home settings. It was later known as the Visiting Nurse Association of the Fox Valley.

In August 2011, the agency changed its name to VNA Health Care to better represent the range of services they offer today and to reflect their historical roots.

The agency now serves all of Kane, Kendall and DeKalb Counties as well as portions of surrounding counties.

Services provided include a full service home health and hospice program, and a health center which concentrates on preventive health services.

The VNA Health Care Endowment Fund distributes grants to assist the agency in all program areas.

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.

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!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

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

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.
