The Community Foundation of Central Illinois is committed to delivering a wide range of services beyond traditional grant making activities to help our donors, nonprofit partners, and other stakeholders achieve their charitable objectives.
By creating a fund with CFCI you receive the expertise of our staff and avoid the paperwork, time, and expense of running a private foundation. We take care of all investing, government reporting, grant investigations, paperwork, auditing, and accounting.
The Community Foundation of Central Illinois supports positive initiatives and innovative approaches to addressing the changing needs of our region. Our purpose is to strengthen our community through engaged grant making and strategic partnerships with other organizations.
Our giving is focused on arts and culture, education, health and human services, and community development. Nonprofit organizations located within a 50-mile radius of the Peoria area are encouraged to apply.
The Community Foundation of Central Illinois considers attorneys, accountants, financial planners, insurance agents, and other professionals who have relationships with members of our community to be our valued partners in charitable giving.
We want to be a resource for you as well as a philanthropic partner for your clients, providing a full understanding of the many possibilities of supporting our community by giving through the Community Foundation.
