Emerging Philanthropists Fund Update
It's time to renew your Emerging Philanthropists Fund membership!  By renewing or becoming a member, you will have the opportunity to review grant applications, help select the top three to five grant finalists, participate in the virtual grant finalist panel in September, and vote on the recipient of the 2020 Emerging Philanthropists Fund grant! A minimum donation of $100 annually per person or $200 per couple/family is required to be a voting member of the Fund.

You may also renew your membership or join the Fund by mailing a check to the Community Foundation of Central Illinois- 3625 North Sheridan Road, Peoria, IL 61604.

Since its inception in 2012, the Emerging Philanthropists Fund has granted more than $35,000 to local nonprofit organizations, and has built a permanent endowed fund of $41,878. We need the generous support of community leaders like yourself to continue our tradition of giving and to expand our positive impact on the community.
