Philanthropist Sally Stevens stands in front of the DeKalb County Community Foundation building in Sycamore on Friday, Feb. 5, 2016. Stevens was born in DeKalb, was raised in Sycamore, and now resides at Oak Crest in DeKalb. She served as secretary for six NIU presidents, working over 32 years for the university. Stevens purchased a life insurance policy with the DeKalb County Community Foundation as the beneficiary, setting the foundation to receive a million dollars when she passes away. The DCCF will then fulfill yearly grants of $45,000-$50,000 off of the interest to the community.
