Who benefits from this event?

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Downers Grove and the dozens of charitable organizations whom benefitted from the proceeds raised at the 2016 Rotary GroveFest, we would like to say “THANK YOU!”

Because of the generosity from sponsors like you, Rotary GroveFest was able to raise more than $70,000.00 last year!  Of which, more than $16,000.00 was donated to twenty-seven not-for-profit volunteer organizations that support causes in and around Downers Grove.  In addition, the Rotary Club of Downers Grove also supports: A total of almost $50,000 was given away to many local, regional, national and international causes!


Some of these causes are listed here:

  • The Charles Dickerman Music Scholarship
  • Rotary Service Scholarships to local high school students
  • The Boy Scouts of America 
  • SEASPAR
  • Indian Boundary YMCA
  • District 58 Foundation
  • The Diveheart Foundation
  • Halloween Window Painting
  • Polio Eradication
  • Alliance for Smiles

As you can see, you have helped to improve the lives of many people in our community.

The Rotary Club has made tremendous strides over the last seven years hosting GroveFest, but our work is not done!  We hope we can count on your support as a corporate sponsor for our 2017 Fest which will be held June 22-25 in downtown Downers Grove.  If possible, please keep us in mind as you pull together your budget for 2017.

Thank you again for your generosity and community partnership.  We hope you will be able to support our festival, the community, and the mission of Rotary in 2017.
