Community Grants Application Open Now!
The Community Foundation of Northern Illinois is excited to announce that the Community Grants program application is now open for the 2021 grantmaking cycle.
Community Grants proposals will be accepted in the areas of Arts & Humanities, Education, Health, Human Services, Sustainable Communities, and Youth & Families. Applications will be accepted from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, religious institutions, units of government, and public universities/colleges. The proposals must describe charitable activities provided for the benefit of residents in Boone, Ogle, Stephenson, or Winnebago Counties.
The Community Grants Program application will be open until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, September 13. All applications must be submitted through CFNIL’s online grants application portal.
