Community Foundation of Northern Illinois



The Community Foundation of Northern Illinois is a nonprofit, endowed public charity that offers donors of all means a flexible, cost-effective way to give back to their community. Simply put, the Foundation is a pool of charitable dollars invested to provide greater funding for community needs. The income from these funds and the principal, if the donor desires, are distributed to nonprofit organizations. This helps our community respond today and prepare for the future.
