Pacific Life Foundation Paves our Way to Programming

DeKalb, IL— January 31, 2023 — Act of Grace was recently awarded a generous $5,000 grant from the Pacific Life Foundation. These funds will contribute to Act of Grace holding monthly client support groups and community education related to seizure disorders in the upcoming year.

Chris Janota, President of the Board of Directors, states, “Everybody at Act of Grace is extremely grateful for this generous support we've received from the Pacific Life Foundation. These funds will help us achieve our core mission of delivering much-needed social and emotional support services to children with epilepsy, as well as their immediate families, all over DeKalb County. Every dollar we take in is put to work so that we can be there to support these underserved families because it's our belief that nobody fights alone.”

At Act of Grace, we have seen the needs of this population grow as other support organizations for seizure disorders have disbanded or relocated away from our community. Act of Grace believes that with continued funding to build social and emotional programming, youth and families affected by seizure disorders will experience significant, long-lasting benefits to quality of life and mental and emotional health through engagement with one another and the community.


Established in 2019 and formally launched in 2020, Act of Grace is a 501(c)(3) organization, still in the grassroots stages, mainly due to the effects of the pandemic. Act of Grace strives to provide emotional and social support to DeKalb County youth with epilepsy, and their families.
