The Community Foundation of Will County

Your Foundation for a Better Will County

In partnership with the Trust, community leaders launched The Community Foundation of Will County to provide support to nonprofit organizations and promote philanthropy as a way to create lasting change. One of the fastest growing counties in the U.S., Will County has overcome significant industrial job losses with the help of a strong business sector, thriving real estate market and vibrant civic culture. The Foundation engages residents in tackling ongoing challenges, including providing educational, employment and housing opportunities and removing barriers to access to quality health care, transportation and other resources for all residents.


The Community Foundation of Will County welcomes not only your donations, but also your charitable ideas and inspirations. A range of tax-efficient options can help you manage your giving—from defining and focusing your charitable intent, to pooling resources to maximize your impact. We invite you to join with us to plant the seed of opportunities, access and resources in Will County.

You can donate online, start an individual fund, or contact us for other options.
