Coles County Community Foundation Advisory Board

About Us

Mattoon Area Community Foundation was established in 1980 by Mattoon citizens for Mattoon citizens. Throughout its history, more than 40 interested and involved Mattoon community members have guided the Foundation as directors on its board, overseeing the management and distribution of funds entrusted to them by donors. Scholarships and other grants disbursed under their direction have benefited many college students, as well as local programs and projects.

Mattoon Area Community Foundation connects people who care about Mattoon and the surrounding area, its citizens and its future, with causes that further the givers’ philanthropic goals. The Community Foundation inspires and assists individuals of all backgrounds in creating lasting legacies for the benefit of the community. Mattoon Area Community Foundation facilitates philanthropy by making it easier for individuals to support the causes they care about, offering personalized service, local expertise and community leadership.
