    Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation


    The Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation provides philanthropic support to help meet the diverse needs in communities throughout Clark, Clay, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper, Lawrence, Marion, Richland, and Shelby counties. The Community Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of life in our region by increasing charitable giving, educating and connecting donors to community needs they care about, and leading on critical community issues.

    • Growth and Development – We work to support communities and member foundations for growth and positive evolution into the future.
