Community Foundation Encourages Contributions for Japan Relief

The Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI) will work with current and new donors interested in funding relief efforts in Japan after last week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Mark Roberts, CFCI’s CEO, stated “the Community Foundation of Central Illinois encourages new and current fund holders to donate to the disaster relief effort of their choice. In an effort to assist our fund holders, CFCI has temporarily waived the 60-day waiting period for new Depository contributions that are intended for disaster relief for Japan.”

CFCI also invites current donor-advised fund holders to contact the Foundation to recommend a grant in support of this important effort.  CFCI will work diligently to provide rapid distribution of charitable support to those in need.  All distributions must be made to qualified 501(c) 3 organizations. 

Existing donors as well as those interested in establishing a new charitable fund are encouraged to contact the Community Foundation of Central Illinois at 309-674-8730 for more information or to make their contribution to Japan’s relief efforts.
