Description

The Freeport Community Foundation was founded in 1976 to serve non-profits and donors in 3 counties in northwestern Illinois: Stephenson, Jo Daviess and Carroll. We have an 11 member Board of Directors. We have an opening created by a current member moving out of our community. The Board's purpose is to advise, govern, oversee policy and assist with the leadership and general promotion of the foundation so as to support the organization's mission and needs. In our 42 year history we have granted over $2.5 Million to support nonprofit organizations. Each board member serves 3 year terms, with 2 terms maximum. We meet as a full board 6 times per year. Each board member also serves on one of 4 committees: Governance, Finance, Marketing and Fund Development, and Grants. Our mission: To help provide for the well-being of the citizens of Northwest Illinois by accumulating assets in the form of permanent funds and prudently distributing income from those funds to charitable organizations.
