Dan GibbonsThe Dan Gibbons Foundation is probably best known for our annual Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot event. To date, we have donated nearly $3.9 million dollars. We take care to keep all funds raised within the County of DuPage. The funds have provided nearly 4 million meals over the years and the event brings families and a community together on a day for giving thanks.

The organization recently expanded to include other events throughout the year. In June 2017, we announced the new Café Liberty culinary skills training program.

Our efforts are only successful because of the gracious donations of our supporters. Your assistance helps us help others and we always appreciate it.
