Triple Threat receives grant from Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley

AURORA – Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley, Triple Threat Mentoring has recently acquired a new, full-service printer/fax machine. The Foundation awarded the grants to Triple Threat in May, and the Aurora-based non-profit purchased the printer in March.

“We’re really grateful for this grant from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley,” said Caleb Luper, executive director of Triple Threat Mentoring. “The more support we receive from the community, the more we are able to help under-resourced youth.”

The organization purchased a Xerox Phaser 8560 with the $3,000 grant.

Triple Threat Mentoring is in its fourth year of operation in Aurora and recently started offering its events and programming in select Chicago neighborhoods.

The non-profit’s mission is ‘empowering urban youth to develop confidence,
character and life skills.

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!

…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.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
