The DuPage Veterans Foundation was established in 2011 for the purpose of honoring and supporting the men and women of our Country who have served so courageously in the United States Military. This 501c3 non-profit organization seeks to recognize special needs of our DuPage veterans and provide fundraising efforts to acknowledge our appreciation for all they have sacrificed for our freedom and safety.
Our organization’s premier initiative, a 2012 fundraiser for Honor Flight Chicago, was a huge success. We reached our objective of raising enough money to fund a flight through Honor Flight Chicago which is a 501c3 non-profit organization developed to give our WWII veterans a day of honor by flying them free of charge to Washington, D.C. for a day of viewing and reflection at the war memorials. (Veterans should register for a flight directly through Honor Flight Chicago. Flights are provided through Southwest Airlines and leave from Midway Airport. There is often a waiting list, so please do not delay in submitting your application for this wonderful opportunity.)
The 2012 event’s success could not have been realized without the support and resources of the DuPage Airport Authority, Calamos Investments, and the City of West Chicago. We thank you for your commitment to honoring our veterans.
Our Second Annual Event will once again raise money for Honor Flight Chicago and this year we are happy to also honor our Korean War Veterans as well as our WWII Veterans. Please see more about our May 4, 2013 event!
