The DeKalb County Community Foundation is pleased to report that $149,300 in fall Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund Grants benefited a total of 31 nonprofit and public sector direct service organizations across the greater Chicagoland area for music education.
“Many of our grant recipients are unable to function as planned at this time,” said George Buck, Advisory Committee Chair for the Wurlitzer Foundation Fund. “Similar to the spring cycle, we adjusted to the fall grant cycle to support a great deal of general operating support to aid in sustainability for these organizations.”
The Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund Grant is one of several grantmaking programs at the Community Foundation. Funding is possible through a Donor Advised Fund established by the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation in 2012.Learn more about Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund Grants >
