The Foundation is actively working with area funders in an effort to grow the fund to $100,000. The public is encouraged to contribute to this fund as a way to address the immediate needs of the area’s citizens.
Contributions can be sent in checks made out to the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, 946 N. Second Street, Rockford, IL 61107 with Natural Disaster fund in the memo line. The Foundation is also capable of taking credit card donations at 815-962-2110 ext. 13. All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
The Foundation will partner with the City of Rockford to determine the most efficient way to assist those who have been devastated by this week’s flooding. Details will be forthcoming.
