The event provided the opportunity to introduce the Foundation’s new leadership team, including board chair Jeff Simmons of Hinsdale and Greg DiDomenico, the Foundation’s new president. Founded in 1995, Community Memorial Foundation works in partnership with non-profit community agencies, government, and businesses to measurably improve the health of those who live and work in 27 West Suburban communities. Through its Responsive Grants Program, the Foundation keeps abreast of the ever-changing needs of its communities. Through its Building Organizational Effectiveness Initiative, it delivers new ways to help strengthen the internal capacities of area non-profits. Through its Healthcare Access Program, it proactively seeks solutions to make a measurable difference in the health and health access of the people of the western suburbs. In the last 17 years, the Hinsdale-based Foundation has awarded more than $52 million in grants to organizations serving people in the area.
