“The Community Foundation is an ideal way to give back to the community to address needs now—and needs that will inevitably come up in the future.”
- Dr. John McClean, Galesburg Community Foundation Board Member
We believe generosity can positively change our communities forever. That is why we make it easy for individuals and organizations to contribute and support local initiatives like education, healthcare, arts, and social services. We do this by providing a centralized way for pooling and managing philanthropic resources.
We have a deep understanding of the local community and its unique challenges. We identify and prioritize pressing issues, ensuring that resources are directed toward areas where they can have the greatest impact. This localized approach fosters targeted and sustainable solutions tailored to the specific needs of our region.
We promote engagement and collaboration. We bring together diverse stakeholders, including donors, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and community members, to work collectively towards shared goals. Fostering partnerships and collaboration creates a sense of ownership and involvement among community members, resulting in a more resilient and empowered community.
We provide expertise and guidance to nonprofits. We assist with capacity building, grant management, and strategic planning. We are a resource and support system for local organizations, helping them become more effective in their work and achieve long-term sustainability.
