GALESBURG, Ill. (Nov. 12, 2018) ─ As part of Community Foundation Week activities, Galesburg Community Foundation’s board, grants committee and staff are pleased to announce the local nonprofit organizations receiving grant awards through the annual grant cycle, The Turnout. This grant cycle combines dollars from generous community donors who hold charitable funds at the Community Foundation along with dollars from the Community Foundation’s Impact Fund to fully fund nonprofit proposals providing services that better our region.

Community Foundation Director of Grants & Programs Tiffany Springer said, “The Turnout connects community members who love their community with local nonprofits providing valuable services in Knox and Warren Counties. This is the first time in our Community Foundation history, along with our Donor Advised Fund holders, that we are able to fully fund 42 or 75% of nonprofit proposals. This is an increase in funding by 50% from 2017’s annual grant cycle. This truly speaks to the power of donors connecting with the causes they care about. The grants awarded in this cycle support exciting and important initiatives in the areas of art, health, education and physical activity that greatly contribute to the well-being of our communities.”
