Grants For Those In Need

Together We Can Help

The Compassion Foundation was founded to help fund organizations who help those most in need. Consider donating to The Compassion Foundation in Aurora, IL and your contribution will go towards helping thousands of people worldwide. Check out our latest events and see the unique options that you have to donate.

IMPORTANT: To All Grantees:

Annually the Compassion Foundation accepts applications for grants at this time of year. However, we will not be accepting grant proposals now. We are currently in the process of reorganizing to strengthen our organization and developing new sources of revenue. Our ultimate goal is to grow the Compassion Foundation on several levels so that our donations can be more substantial and therefore more meaningful in the future. Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
