The Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund (“Fund”) was created in 2007 to help small non-profits across Illinois. Money for the Fund comes from the filing fees non-profit organizations pay to incorporate with the State of Illinois. The program is funded by non-profits and exists to support non-profits.
During the Spring 2022 grant cycle, United Way of Northwest Illinois was 1 of 10 recipients - out of 124 applicants - and was awarded $15,000 to provide care packages for seniors living in Stephenson, Jo Daviess & Carroll counties.
Grants from the Charitable Trust are funding programs in 3 categories: Food, Housing and Workforce & Economic Development. The funding that we received will allow us to provide 3 rounds of care packages from now through June 2023. Care packages will consist of food & household products.
The first round of Care Packages were delivered December 16, 2022.
The second round of Care Package requests is closed & Packages will be delivered the week of February 13, 2023.
Another round of Care Packages will be going out in Spring - check back for an announcement of requests being open!
