ILLINOIS PRAIRIE GREEN ENDOWMENT (ENVIRONMENT)
In 2010, the Board of Directors identified five fields of interest for which they wished to focus their efforts for endowment-building: Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Health and Wellness, and Youth.
The Board recognizes that there are very few local funding sources for projects and programs that deal with environmental issues that affect our communities. Central Illinois is blessed with beautiful woodlands, wetlands, prairies, rivers, and lakes, as well as an abundance of native flora and fauna. All of us want clean air to breathe, safe water to drink, and unspoiled recreational areas. All of these things make our community more enjoyable to live in now, and our goal is to help conserve and preserve these assets far into the future.
Each year, distributions from the Green Endowment are pooled with those from other endowments and gifts to the Annual Campaign to be used for General Grants that include environmental projects and programs. Please help us build this endowment by donating now!
