Vicki Morcos was recently named president and CEO of the Dunham Fund.
“During the six years Vicki has been with the organization, she has demonstrated her passion for connecting with nonprofits and our partners,” said Stewart Beach, chairman of the Dunham Fund's board of advisors. “We know Vicki will continue to honor John C. Dunham’s vision to make the world — especially the Dunham Fund service area — a more comfortable, safer place for mankind to live and prosper.”
As partnership officer for the Dunham Fund, Morcos collaborated with foundations and corporations who have similar missions to leverage resources. Through these partnerships, nonprofits have secured an additional $4 million in funding for programs and projects in the Dunham Fund’s Fox Valley service area.
For the past four years, Morcos has overseen professional development workshops to local nonprofits to foster collaboration between organizations to deepen and leverage their impact within the community. Through these efforts, local nonprofits raised $460,500 in 2016 and saw donations increase to $814,000 in 2018.
The Dunham Fund is a charitable trust supporting nonprofits in the Fox Valley area. The Dunham Fund supports organizations that work to positively impact a defined service area in Chicago's western suburbs.
With $100 million in assets, the Dunham Fund provides roughly $4.5 million in grants annually, to support education — birth through college — as well as the economic growth and social development of individuals living in the community.
