Our charity for 2019-2020
The Geneva Community Chest, was founded nearly 50 years ago to support the entire Fox Valley area. It funds worthy, local non-profit charitable social service organizations that provide aid and assistance to people in need.
Because the Geneva Community Chest operates entirely with volunteers and has no staff, office building, rent or related costs, virtually all of the funds raised go directly to the charities that need it the most.
Since its inception, the Geneva Community Chest has continued to remain an independent, community-based organization and not become a part of or affiliate with any national fundraising organization. As such, no funds are diverted to meet stringent funding and staffing requirements imposed by national fundraising organizations.
Consequently, one donation goes a lot further to help those who need it right here in our community.

Welcome to the Fox Valley Community
Are you new to the area?
Have you had a lifestyle change?
Are you looking for a friendly social group?
The Fox Valley Newcomers and Neighbors would like to meet you and welcome you to our group!
We have one common goal: to make friends. We are new or not so new to the area. We are retired, getting back into social activities after children go to school, or just looking to network. We can help you with the many questions and challenges involved in relocating or just learning more about the area.
We have members with no children, young children, teenagers, college students and empty nesters. We have a variety of interests, but most importantly, we want you to feel connected to a group as well as our community.
We have all been " the new kid on the block" and we really understand the emotional roller coaster that moving to a new state or community can be. We know you will find us a friendly and welcoming group.
The Fox Valley Newcomers and Neighbors has many different activities that our members can join depending on their interests. Please see our Activities and Newsletter pages for more information on our current activities.
