People’s Resource Center is a vital organization making a difference in the lives of thousands of neighbors in DuPage County since 1975.
A strong endowment is the “story behind the story” at the most successful organizations making the most impact in their communities across the country. The organizations that make a difference today and sustain impact over time are, almost without exception, those with strong endowments.
To ensure that People’s Resource Center is not only able to meet the needs of our neighbors who come to our doors now, but is also innovative and progressive in the future and accessible for all families in DuPage County, we must continue to build a financial endowment for the future. Together, we can guarantee PRC will be able to meet the needs for decades into the future.
