Fighting Hunger in DuPage County

Who We are

Our Impact

Why Donate?

It was 1983 and Dan was listening to Ed Schwartz, overnight talk show host on WGN radio. Schwartz was angry because Mayor Jane Byrne was spending $300,000 on fireworks in Chicago for New Year’s Eve when so many people were going to bed hungry. Unfortunately, the problem wasn’t isolated to Chicago. In DuPage County, thousands of people were also hungry. This news really struck a chord with Gibbons and led to his involvement in Schwartz’s Good Neighbor Food Drive. It was just the beginning of his involvement with the hunger problem.

The DGTT Foundation is a 501c 3 nonprofit organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service – EIN: 36-3435457.

To date, the Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot has raised nearly $3.9 million dollars and takes 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 Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot is pleased to benefit numerous organizations including Dupage PadsUnited Community Concerns AssociationPeople’s Resource CenterWest Suburban Community PantryLoaves & Fishes Community Services, and Catholic Charities – DuPage County.

The Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot uses a thorough application and evaluation process to choose the beneficiaries who will receive your donation.
