Community Foundation of Central Illinois



The Community Foundation of Central Illinois, formed in 1988 as the Peoria Area Community Foundation, was established by a group of community-minded citizens to meet a wide variety of social, cultural, educational and other charitable needs throughout Central Illinois. We work to meet these needs through the distribution of income from endowment funds established by our generous donors.


The Community Foundation of Central Illinois carries out our mission by building permanent endowments as charitable capital for the Central Illinois community. We maintain high professional standards in the investment and management of the funds entrusted to the Foundation. We also promote effective and efficient grantmaking to serve current and future needs of Central Illinois.
