As a physician group, we believe in giving back. The DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund was developed as a means to formally give our time, talents and expertise for the benefit of those less fortunate. Our Charitable Fund seeks to empower local non-profits that promote healthy lifestyles through food access, affordable housing and community health and wellness.
The DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund supports community organizations by:
- Providing an organized, coordinated, systematic approach to giving back to our community
- Promoting professionalism and volunteerism among DMG physicians, care providers and staff
- Obtaining charitable contributions to expand our work throughout DuPage County and beyond
In 2017, the Charitable fund empowered 31 non-profits and logged over 2,500 hours of service in DuPage and Will Counties.
How can local organizations receive support from the DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund?
The Charitable Fund offers financial support through grants, volunteer service from physicians, care providers and staff as well as in-kind donations such as food, toys, clothing and more.
