2016 LIVE UNITED Award Winners

Gustafson Family Foundation Receives LIVE UNITED Award

“For creating opportunities and inspiring hope for a better tomorrow,” this year’s LIVE UNITED award was presented to the Gustafson Family Foundation.

The trustees of the Gustafson Family Foundation work to preserve the passion and philanthropy of founders Dolores D. and Allen L. Gustafson. Since its inception, the foundation has invested over $6,000,000 with partner organizations in DuPage, Cook, and Kane counties, focusing on advancing early childhood education and pediatric healthcare.

“We are proud that the Gustafson Family Foundation has chosen to support our SPARK program with generous funding of $85,000 over the last three years,” said Meyer.  “This is a tremendous contribution toward our efforts to ensure that all of Aurora’s children have access to high quality preschool programs.”
