Compassion Foundation is a not for profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Aurora, Illinois, dedicated to its mission of working to alleviate the suffering of the poor and to meet their needs. Through a variety of fundraising activities, CF raises funds to provide grants to groups or individuals who work to that end and encourages self-help programs.

Funding is based on need, not creed, thus Compassion Foundation grants funds in a non-discriminatory manner to not for profit organizations in Kane, Kendall and DuPage counties. Applications for assistance will open on October 1 and deadline for submissions will be on November 30. All applications will be reviewed by the Board of Directors Grant Selection Committee in December, at which time applicants will be notified of the board decision. Funds are generally disbursed annually in January/February. Any one person or organization is limited to one annual grant with exact monetary amounts to be determined.
