The Illinois Community College System Foundation was originally founded to provide a single building with enough office space to house the entire operations of the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB). Since its inception, the Foundation has grown, as has the building, renting the excess office space to provide additional funds to be used toward the greater goal: to serve and support the students, faculty, staff, and administration of the Illinois Community College System.
The Foundation manages over $2 million in investments that generate funds for the various scholarships that are awarded at all 48 of the community colleges in the 39 districts in Illinois. Each year the Foundation gives up to $100,000 in scholarships to students, and supports programs like the Illinois Community College System Leadership Scholarship, which benefits a community college administrator pursuing a post-graduate degree and performing a study that will benefit the system.
The Illinois Community College System Foundation (ICCSF), a 501(c)3 non-profit entity, serves all 48 Illinois community colleges in the State of Illinois, providing student scholarships, programs, services, and general funds.
The vision of the Illinois Community College System Foundation is to become one of the three leaders in the Illinois Community College System by providing leadership; financial resources to support faculty, staff, students, courses and programs, and facilities; and to enhance the image of the System throughout the State of Illinois through quality fundraising and grantsmanship.
