The COVID-19 crisis has had a devastating impact on the organizations and programs benefiting the Greek and Orthodox community of the Chicagoland area. As a result, the Hellenic Foundation’s Board of Directors is extending the 2020 Grant Application Deadline to August 1, 2020 in an attempt to provide additional time for organizations to re-evaluate and revise their grant applications, as needed. It is the Hellenic Foundation's hope that this extension will result in an increased number of grant applications and improved programs for the benefit of our community.
