Open to see "HPCF Special Message: COVID-19 Response"
Residents continue to be significantly impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak
HPCF Board members, staff, and family members assemble COVID Care Kits for distribution to Highwood families by the Highwood Public Library. Project funded by a COVID-19 Emergency Relief grant from the HPCF and additional support from Craig & Monette Leva.
So many Highland Park and Highwood residents have experienced job losses, hunger, mental health issues, isolation, and more. Your donation will ensure that the needs of neighbors are addressed in what continues to be an unprecedented time of uncertainty.
As we take steps to protect our own families, workplaces, and neighborhoods from the effects of the virus, let’s not forget the impact COVID-19 has had on our neighbors. Missing paychecks, the inability to pay rent, and a lack of access to food and essential supplies are realities many residents still face.
Please join us in addressing their needs.
Donations made in support of the HPCF COVID-19 Response & Recovery Appeal will be used to fund requests the HPCF continues to receive from our grant recipients and other agencies that serve Highland Park and Highwood residents. To date, we have distributed 106 emergency grants, totaling close to $240,000, to support the important work of these organizations. Click here to see the full list of COVID-19 Emergency Grant Recipients and the types of needs we gave addressed through our grants.
100% of all donations will go directly to support services and supplies for those in need, with the exception of a small credit card processing fee that online donors may choose to cover.

C-Corporations can also deduct 25% of their taxable income, raised from 10%. Click here to read more.
David was passionate about the Highland Park Community Foundation (HPCF). As a founder, Board member, and Advisory Council member, David’s contributions were appreciated beyond words. David remained engaged in our efforts even when his health limited his ability to attend meetings and he continued, with the help of his wife Linda, to raise money for the HPCF and further our mission through other means.
David contributed to his community in numerous ways beyond his service to the HPCF and was a very successful businessman. Above all, though, David was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
We are honored that David’s family designated the Highland Park Community Foundation for donations made in David’s memory. To make a donation online, click here.
