Grants generally ranging from $500 to $5,000 to Illinois and Missouri nonprofit organizations to benefit communities in Brown, Adams, Hancock, or Pike counties in Illinois or Knox, Clark, Lewis, Monroe, Marion, Ralls, Pike, or Shelby counties in Missouri.
When an organization submits an application to the competitive grant program, funding may result from one, or a combination of, the following funds:
Unrestricted Endowment Funds: Grant requests are considered in the fields of arts and culture, community betterment, education, health and human services. Focus and support may encompass the following counties:
- Illinois: Adams, Brown, Hancock and Pike
- Missouri: Clark, Lewis, Marion, Ralls, Pike, Knox, Shelby and Monroe
Field of Interest Funds: Funds are set up with parameters for support in specific interest areas, such as the arts or human services, or by geographic locations, such as a specific school district, community or county.
County Endowment Funds: If an organization or its project’s primary operation is in Brown, Pike or Hancock Counties in Illinois or Marion or Lewis Counties in Missouri, the application will also be reviewed by that county’s County Fund Council for potential funding. Receiving funding from a County Endowment Fund does not disqualify an organization from receiving a grant or partial grant from Unrestricted or Field of Interest funds.

The Community Foundation may also support charitable projects in the community or award scholarships; in these cases, there are specific policies and procedures which the Community Foundation follows to assure charitable purposes are met and that compliance with all regulations are met.
Grants will be made to support projects and programs of organizations that prove to be fiscally responsible by providing tangible proof of adequate accounting procedures. Multiple grants to the same organization are acceptable. Recurring grants for the same program are acceptable, but not to be encouraged.
