Women's Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois

Join us! The Women’s Fund endowment supports projects that strengthen families and communities by empowering women and girls.

As women grow in influence and financial strength, so does their ability to give back. You can change the lives of women and children in central Illinois by contributing to the Women's Fund endowment.

Why? Because when women prosper, communities thrive; and when communities thrive, the world becomes a better place for everyone.

A Million Dollar Goal

Our goal for the Women’s Fund is to find 1,000 women who will donate $1,000 - to create a million dollar endowment. Our fund is a third of the way there!

This level of giving to the Women's Fund creates a legacy that will live on beyond all of us. With a million dollar endowment, the Women's Fund would be able to provide $40,000 a year to deserving programs.

Today, we are inviting you to a new level of giving - to elevate women and girls to the top of your philanthropic list and to invest in them with even greater commitment.
