Love of God Foundation
The Love of God Foundation is committed to providing financial assistance to educational, humanitarian, and mission organizations in memory of and to continue the works and efforts of Larry and Joyce Marquardt.
The third annual Gratitude & Grace Race, a 5K run and 3K walk, was a wonderful success! Held at Lisle Community Park on Saturday, July 26th, this family-friendly event included a raffle, continental breakfast, and a moon jump for kids, with all proceeds benefiting Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and Hesed House, a homeless shelter in Aurora, Illinois.

Thank you for your support with our two fundraising events this summer! Due to the incredible generosity of donors and race participants, we raised over $20,000 through our two events combined. While we took a one-year hiatus from hosting the Love of God Foundation Dinner, we raised funds in June for the following two organizations through a mail-in fundraiser: Education and Hope, which educates severely impoverished children while providing some of their most basic needs in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, and St. Marcus School, a nationally recognized leader in urban educational reform and student transformation in Milwaukee, WI.
