In 2010, the Board of Directors identified five fields of interest for which they wished to focus their efforts in endowment-building: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Health and Wellness, and Youth.

The Board recognized that vibrant arts programs, available to a wide spectrum of participants, make our communities attractive and desirable to businesses, professionals, families, and retirees.

Annual distributions from the Illinois Prairie Arts and Culture Endowment are added to those from several other arts endowments and to generous contributions from the Jerome Mirza Arts and Culture Fund to provide funding for annual competitive grants.

A gift to the Illinois Arts and Culture Endowment, will ensure that programs that enrich the lives of those in our communities will be available forever.
