Elmwood Illinois Community Foundation

The PioneersThe Elmwood IL Community Foundation was incorporated in 1999, after the Elmwood City Council sponsored a community meeting to explore ways to create a forum for discussing general community development. From its inception, the Foundation mobilized into a dynamic organization endeavoring to identify and strengthen Elmwood's many assets. A number of goals, objectives and priorities were identified and the Foundation began collecting, organizing and compiling information about the community. With the assistance of residents, businesses, community organizations and other agencies, the Foundation set out to make Elmwood Illinois a great place to work, to prosper, to visit and to live.

The Foundation's commitment to the community is strong and ambitious, and has a proven record of hard work and devotion. The efforts of the Foundation are evident in the many accomplishments and activities that are enjoyed by residents and visitors to the community.
