Partners & Sponsors
We could not make our work happen without the many organizations who donate their time, talents, and resources. Below is an ever increasing list of partners who help put a smile on the faces of some brave young children.
We owe a tremendous thanks to our sponsors who help to make the magic happen for children time and time again. Without their support, we would not be able to make ONP what it is today. Please enjoy learning about our sponsors and the wonderful things they do for our organization.
Daniel F. & Ada L. Rice Foundation
The Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Foundation has been a long time supporter of Operation North Pole, Inc., providing financial support to further our mission of helping children in need. The first private foundation to grant ONP funds, the Rice Foundation has played a critical role in the formation and growth of our organization and we are forever grateful for their support and trust in our mission. Without their support, ONP would not be the organization it has become and strives to be.
Fred and Jean Allegretti Foundation
The Fred and Jean Allegretti Foundation has provided grant requests to ONP for a number of years. Their generosity has allowed us to continue to make wishes come true for seriously ill children. We consider ourselves privileged to be handmaids of the Allegretti Foundation , fulfilling Christmas wishes to needy families on their behalf. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for the faith and trust that the Allegretti Foundation has placed in us.
Union Pacific Foundation
The Union Pacific Foundation has assisted ONP in recent years with financial support for our operations, especially those associated with our train travel expenses. Working with Union Pacific employees, all who have a “can do” attitude, makes the train experience part of our day a pleasing and seamless one. We are grateful to both the Union Pacific Foundation and their many employees for their ongoing support and dedication to making ONP such a unique experience for our families.
Anthony and Stephanie Lupo and Family
Stephanie Lupo showed up one day, saying she had heard about ONP from a friend of hers. She asked if she could get involved. Little did we know what was in store for ONP when we said “sure!” The Lupo Family has helped ONP both financially and, of equal importance, in broadening the scope of ONP in the community. They have been tireless in helping raise awareness for the Secret Santa program with their many friends and have helped build relationships with community leaders and ONP. We are blessed to have their support and dedication.
Duchossois Family Foundation
ONP is grateful for the support of The Duchossois Family Foundation ("DFF"). We are humbled to be worthy of their support. Equally important, we are grateful to Mary Ann Roeser, President of the DFF, who understands what it takes to run a charity. She recognized our organization's many volunteers when she recently stated to us...."Thanks to so many who work on behalf of ONP to bring light and support to children and families in need...." Thank you Mary Ann on behalf of all who make ONP the organization that it is.
