Serving DeKalb County, IL Since 1993

Your Community Foundation is committed to its mission to enhance the quality of life in DeKalb County. We are monitoring the great work that is already being done in response to COVID-19 and are positioning ourselves to provide support in the coming weeks where it is needed most. We care deeply about this community and will do all we can to take precautions, contribute to preparedness, and respond to rising needs.

As actions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 continue to be enacted, we are taking the following precautions to ensure the health and safety of our employees and the public:

  • We have postponed taking new Freight Room event reservations indefinitely.  We will communicate when we will accept new reservations.
  • The Foundation office is open and staff are working a combination of in office and remotely during our regular office hours of Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Staff are available by phone and email. Please note that our phone system is tied to our email. Feel free to leave a voicemail for any staff person by calling 815-748-5383. They will receive notification of your message and will respond in a timely manner.
  • Foundation staff are available to meet in person by appointment.  Please reach out to the appropriate staff member by phone and/or e-mail to schedule a time to meet.
  • Staff are limiting their attendance at external (physical) group meetings, but are well equipped for Zoom meetings as needed.

Lastly, we anticipate that the effects of COVID-19 will be significant on our community—particularly for our most vulnerable residents and area nonprofit organizations. Therefore, please continue to give generously to our local nonprofits so that they have the resources necessary to respond OR consider making a donation to the DeKalb County COVID-19 Response Fund.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time of national concern and encourage you to take all appropriate precautions to protect your health and well-being and that of our community.
