Welcome to the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation
What do we do at the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation?
We provide administrative and technical assistance to our affiliate community foundations. All fundraising is conducted locally and all grants benefit the local community represented by the affiliate community foundation.
Also known as a geographic component fund, an affiliate community foundation is a smart way for a community to support local charities without taking on the cost and administrative burden of managing an endowment.
While retaining its own identity, an affiliate foundation benefits from reduced administrative expenses and has access to the professional staff, fund management, and investment expertise of the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation.
