BUILDING BRIDGES BETWEEN DONORS AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
Galesburg Community Foundation works to improve the quality and health of our communities. We believe that connecting people to the causes they care about is a key ingredient to effective philanthropy.
We prefer permanent change to temporary charity. While charity is good, it is usually intended to help an immediate situation; GCF is focused on solving problems with long term, sustainable help that lasts. To accomplish this, we create endowment funds that permanently benefit communities year after year.
Your Support System for Local Philanthropy
GCF has worked extensively with community leaders, business professionals, Chambers of Commerce, nonprofit organizations, volunteers, residents, teachers, students and donors. We know what challenges our communities are facing and how best to provide help.
