The Foundation for Northwest Illinois

The Foundation for Northwest Illinois​ strives to be a resource for you as well as a philanthropic partner for your clients. We know that developing a charitable plan that takes into account your client’s financial and charitable needs is no small task. We also realize that it is a challenge and privilege to serve your clients as they seek to achieve their philanthropic goals and leave a legacy for the future.

We consider attorneys, accountants, financial planners and other professionals as valued partners in charitable giving. We strive to offer them the most up-to-date tools, expertise and information regarding the many possibilities of charitable giving in Northwest Illinois.

Our expert staff makes free presentations to groups regarding charitable giving options, community needs, grant making, planned giving and the tax benefits of charitable giving. Please call us to schedule a speaker at your office, club or group.

We have an outstanding reputation for integrity and service to our donors, and we would like to partner with you as you develop charitable giving plans.
