CFNIL Fund Advisors

At the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, the term "Fund Advisors" refers to people who receive communication about and in some cases make recommendations on behalf of an established endowment. Fund Advisors receive quarterly fund communication including:

- Fund statements
- A letter from the Foundation president with updates about CFNIL activities and operations
- A Stewardship Summary which includes up-to-date information about CFNIL's investment performance

Historically, Fund Advisors have received this information in paper format via the mail. CFNIL has now launched an online Fund Advisor Portal, which allows Fund Advisors to view and interact with their fund information digitally!

Current Fund Advisors with access to the Portal may use the button below to sign in to their account. If you have not yet received a username and password and are a documented advisor for one or more charitable funds held at CFNIL, please contact Ciara Stahly, Assistant Development Director, for assistance: or 779-210-8203

Alerts and Paper Statements: Opting In or Out
Each quarter, you will receive an email alert when a new statement is posted and ready to view in the portal. You also have the option to receive an email alert every time a Donation is made or a Grant is paid out from your Fund. These alerts can be utilized or cancelled at any point but are not retroactive, so you will not be notified of past grants or donations. By default, Fund Advisors will continue to receive paper statements by mail unless you notify CFNIL of your desire to stop receiving paper statements. To opt in or out of Alerts or paper statements, please contact Ciara at 779-210-8203 or
