To engage the people of southern Illinois in building a tradition of philanthropy. The Southern Illinois Community Foundation is committed to creating an opportunity for donors to participate in local community development efforts to address the changing needs of our community through charitable giving.


This will be accomplished by building a regional endowment, designated funds, field of interest funds, donor-advised funds and undesignated funds in order to enhance the quality of life throughout our region.

  • We are a local organization with deep roots in the communities of southern Illinois.

  • We help donors create personal legacies by building endowed funds that benefit our communities forever.

  • We convene and connect agencies and resources to create positive change throughout our region.

  • We help shape and realize the philanthropic dreams of generous Southern Illinoisans.
