About DP9

On January 30, 2004, we lost a tremendous individual when Darrell Pollack passed away, leaving behind a wife and three young children. Darrell was not only a devoted husband and father, but was very generous to the community as well.

During his short lifetime, Darrell devoted countless hours of time and energy to improving the educational, recreational and religious experiences of the children around him. He constantly put needs of others ahead of his own.

As a tribute to Darrell's memory, and to continue his generosity of spirit, we established the Darrell Pollack DP9 Foundation to provide support for children who have lost a parent. Our goal is to give educational and recreational scholarships, counseling services, medical grants, and other support to children coping with such a tragedy.

The Foundation is an Illinois Not For Profit Corporation. Contributions to the DP9 Foundation are tax-deductible and can be mailed to our corporate address below, or click the "Donate Now" link on the left frame.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or use our contact form.
