DOWNERS GROVE - The Grove Foundation has announced its 2020 annual grant program to fund local organizations who enhance the quality of life in Downers Grove.
“In the eight years since we developed this grant funding process, we’ve awarded $50,000 to local organizations for programs and projects that benefit residents,” said Grove Foundation President Mary Ellen Young. “Our community has generously supported the Grove Foundation for over 25 years. We hope to sustain worthwhile programs with our support.”
