Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation’s mission is to "cultivate philanthropy to build better communities." We carry out this mission by helping individuals, families and organizations make permanent charitable investments for the long-term benefit of their hometowns. We believe that everyone has the opportunity to become a philanthropist and we work one-on-one with donors to ensure that their charitable goals are met. We invite you to learn more about how we are serving the people of southeastern Illinois and hope you are inspired by the work of our governing board, donors, and professional advisors who are making a difference in our communities. And, of course, feel free to contact us to discuss your charitable goals.   


We offer grants from a wide variety of donors
