DeKalb County Community Foundation (IL)



The DeKalb County Community Foundation provides donors with a way to create permanent support for the charitable projects they care about. Our donors invest in the community?s future by coming to us to establish charitable endowment funds. Their gifts are never spent but are invested for growth and income. Each year part of the fund?s growth is returned to the community in the form of grants for charitable projects and programs. And each year a portion of the fund?s growth is reinvested in the fund to ensure that the fund grows with inflation.
