CHALLENGE TODAY. CHANGE TOMORROW.

CREATING IMPACT THROUGH COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS & PROGRAMS

The Mr. Davids Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that fills the gaps within our communities, providing awareness of critical community needs and providing financial support to organizations, initiatives and individuals that help improve our neighborhoods and empower the people within them.

Since its inception, Mr. Davids Flooring International has had a long philanthropic history within the local community. The company's interest to establish the Mr. Davids Foundation began in 2014, after having five successful Mr. Davids 50K Bike Challenges which began in 2009.  In 2015, the Foundation organized formally and in 2016, Mr. Davids Foundation received its 501(c)(3) designation as a nonprofit charitable organization.

The annual Mr. Davids Challenge is the Foundations largest fundraising event, raising over $600,000 for community initiatives since the challenges were introduced in 2009. In 2018, the Foundation implemented a new program named Kittie’s Warriors. The Kittie’s Warriors Program provides grants to cancer patients undergoing treatment who demonstrate a financial need. The Program works closely with licensed social workers at treatment facilities to determine eligible individuals.

The dire need for expanding these services in the community is astounding. Each day, approximately 450 individuals from the community arrive at the Hoffman Estates facility seeking care and treatment, many of whom are minors and students referred by local schools. Imagine how differently the community would look without having access to a place of care for those struggling with mental health issues. At a time when Federal and State funding is decreasing for mental health services, it is imperative for the hospital to continue to maintain its facility and grow to better serve the communities where we live, work, and play.
