IPCF Reports Record-Breaking Annual Campaign
Thanks to many generous donors, IPCF closed its 2016 Annual Campaign with the largest total in its history - $43,475. Annual Campaign donations are used to fund IPCF General Grants (Education, Environment, Health and Wellness, and Youth) and to support the work of IPCF in building endowments and promoting community philanthropy. Distributions from several field of interest endowments are added to the money available for grants. Although the Annual Campaign officially runs from November 1 to January 15, we appreciate gifts throughout the year to build momentum for next year's grants. if you would like to help, please visit http://www.ilprairiecf.org/illinois-prairie-community-foundation-annual-campaign/
