Rock Island Community Foundation grants grant funding donors

About RICF

The first investments to the Rock Island Community Foundation came from the Foundation's eight founders on April 16, 1967. Each member simply reached into their pockets and donated $20 a piece. Since then, the Foundation has given away nearly $1,200,000.00 (including 2011) to community groups. The Foundation has grown to nearly 2 million dollars in assets.

The Board of Governors consists of nine carefully selected Rock Island residents who serve three-year terms without compensation. Any individual on the Board will be happy to answer questions.

Any Trust Officer is available to answer questions about the Foundation.
