Peoria, IL- The Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI) is now accepting Success Grant applications.
Since 1993, the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois has been working to change the lives of women and children in central Illinois. By setting a goal to reach a one million dollar endowment they continue to help women and children who need it most through their grant making. Surprisingly, less than five percent of charitable contributions go towards funding women’s programs.
Through their endowment they have been able to grant more than $160,000 to programs benefiting women and girls. The Women’s Fund continues to bring women’s issues to the forefront in Central Illinois.
