May 2 - May 6    Giving DuPage Days

About Giving DuPage Days

For 5 days in May, an entire county will come together to send a resounding message of HOPE to our local nonprofit community. Community organizations continue to serve our residents during the many challenges we face today. This is our opportunity to honor and support their work!

We’re inviting everyone to join us for Giving DuPage Days, an online fundraiser, with a goal to raise over $550,000 for over 95 local nonprofit organizations serving DuPage County.

From May 2-6, we will connect individuals, families, businesses, schools, community & faith groups to celebrate and create awareness for participating charities. Everyone is welcome and donors of all ages can participate! In the past 2 years, over 4,600 amazing donors have helped to raise $622,072 for so many worthy nonprofit causes!

Join us this year to show how GENEROSITY CHANGES EVERYTHING and help local charities raise unrestricted funds in support of their mission and critical programs!

May 2 - May 6    Help Injured and Orphaned Wildlife Return Home
Join us this week during Giving DuPage Days and help support injured and orphaned wildlife at Willowbrook Wildlife Center.
Please donate https://www.givingdupageday.org/organizations/friends-of-the-forest-preserve-district-of-dupage-county

Last year Willowbrook Wildlife Center staff, supported by volunteers, treated more than 11,500 injured and orphaned native animals, spending over $100,000 on veterinary care alone. No one ever gets a bill for bringing in an animal (and we’ve yet to see a furred or feathered patient present an insurance card).

Willowbrook treats the animals in its care with support from Forest Preserve District tax dollars and people like you who care about wildlife.

Your gift gives a helping hand to the wild animals who need it.

Thank you for your generosity!

May 9    Living Room Conversations: Civic Renewal

Please join Living Room Conversations where small groups discuss a variety of topics to better understand everyone's point of view. This month's topic is Civic Renewal.

Civic life encompasses the ways that people connect and contribute to their community and society (voting, volunteering, etc.). Many facets of civic life have been in decline over the past few years. This conversation is an opportunity to reimagine our civic engagement. Success depends on our ability to create spaces that foster relationships of belonging and opportunity. Provided in partnership with the Wheaton Public Library. Let’s discuss!
