YOUR COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
REMEMBERING JOHN COOKE
We recently lost a friend and a founding board member of the Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County. John believed in community, saw opportunity and promise in Jo Daviess County, and committed his time, talent, and resources to make our community a better place.
We are sad to lose John and steadfastly committed to carrying on his legacy of inspiring generosity and leadership in our community.
Make a gift in memory of John Cooke.
FOOD INSECURITY PROJECT
LET'S STOP HUNGER - TOGETHER
The Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County is launching a project to help address hunger in our County. The Food Insecurity Project will engage with the people and programs who work to provide food for people in need, local leaders, and community members. We'll work together to learn what is working, where there are unmet needs, and how to help more people have the food they need. You can help.
It's YOUR Community Foundation. Give YOUR Way.
We're here to help you give back to your community in a personal and meaningful way to make your vision for a better community a reality. We specialize in helping you create a fund or contribute to an existing fund for a cause you care about.
Estate planners, financial planners, attorneys, and other professional advisors often discuss the benefits of charitable giving with clients. How do you know the needs in the community or what charitable causes or organizations are addressing them? That's where we fit in.
