For good.OUR VISION: To raise the quality of lifethroughout east central Illinois.Since the Community Foundation was established in 1972, it has distributed nearly$16 million in charitable grants to over 400 nonprofit organizations that work toimprove the quality of life in communities throughout the area. These charitabledistributions include designated and undesignated gifts from endowments, field ofinterest funds, donor-advised funds and scholarship funds. The success of the Community Foundation is found in the spirit of generosity—and the donors who care about this generation and the next.For ever. ON THE COVER:OUR MISSION: To be a leader and major catalyst Urbana Neighborhoodfor long-term philanthropic assistance to the Connections Centerresidents of east central Illinois.

Phyllis Robeson, Clare Haussermann, Jane Green and Anna Merritt catch up at 2016 Past & Present Board of Trustees Luncheon.

Can You Say “Unprecedented”It is always interesting to look back on a year and reflect on the changes,events, new friends and loyal supporters, as well as to look forward tocontinuing to build upon the new foundations formed.Some things have not changed so much. Both 2015 and 2016 ended without Tom Costello and Joan Dixona state budget. While some of our nonprofits were included in consent decreesthat ensured they would be paid, others were not. Once again, we wereamazed at the determination and grit with which many agencies found newways to ensure they continued to provide vital services. The stock market wasup and down through the year, but showed a somewhat promising upticktoward the end of the year. The “unprecedented” presidential election cycleintroduced the kind of uncertainty typical with changing administrations. Weare certainly hoping to see reliable growth as 2017 progresses.Once again, the Foundation was able to distribute nearly a million dollars,primarily to organizations in east central Illinois. Nearly 130 nonprofits received grants, scholarships,Program Related Investments and designated fund distributions. All three of our Building Better Boardsnonprofits made great progress through the first phase with two receiving $5,000 unrestricted grants beforethe end of the year. Our Collective Impact Grant project is up and running and receiving great reviewsfrom all three partners. You’ll find more details about these projects inside.The Community Foundation will miss two women whose support wasinstrumental in crafting the values that continue to guide our organization. HelenLevin, one of the founders of the Foundation and long-time supporter, andHester Suggs, a former board member and an invaluable member of our grantscommittee for many years, both passed away this year.We were excited to purchase our building at the end of 2015. During the firstquarter of 2016, we bought a “big rock,” indicative of the permanence of anendowment-based organization. We patched, painted and carpeted the stairs andsecond floor space to accommodate and assist emerging nonprofit organizationsprimarily focused on social issues that affect our communities. During discussionsand planning we found new partnerships with several University of Illinoisdepartments and community leaders interested in helping to develop innovativephilanthro-preneurial solutions to social issues. We look forward to implementinga plan during 2017.Looking forward, we are excited to continue our financial and governance support of regional nonprofitsand fully implement our Community Sollutions Incubator. We are planning two new “giving circles” thatwe believe will help us introduce the Community Foundation to new audiences. As always, we recognizeand thank all of our donors and supporters whose generosity enables us to do many great things for greatorganizations that make life better for residents.Sincerely,Joan Dixon Tom CostelloPresident & CEO Chair, Board of Trustees 2016 Annual Report • 1

2016 ACHIEVEMENTSHope Meadows residents interested and impressed with the students’ progress and enthusiasm about the CollectiveImpact project.The goal: Develop a model project that helps the high school students learn valuable new skills by working in thehomes of real seniors to improve energy efficiency and safety. The senior citizens will save on energy bills and be safer.Hope Meadows, Rantoul Township High School, Habitat of Champaign County and the Community Foundationwill all further their core missions.In the spring of 2016, the three project partners and the Community Foundation began planning the project. First,the curriculum and the equipment to teach the concepts and skills needed to complete energy assessments weredetermined. During the summer, Rantoul High School Home Maintenance & Repair teacher Grant Kelly tookOSHA Instructor Training and researched and recommended the new equipment to be purchased through the grant.During the first semester of the Home Maintenance & Repair classes, students received training on OSHA safetyrules and thermal imaging. Twenty-two students received OSHA Ten-Hour Construction Safety Cards which arerequired for many construction jobs. Having the card will be an advantage in getting future jobs.As their final class project, students conducted thermal imaging assessments at three Hope Meadows houses andwrote reports on their early findings. Mr. Kelly and five students presented an overview of their work at a meeting ofaround 25 interested Hope Meadows residents. When asked what made this project different from in-school projects,the students answered, “The people in this room!”Second semester classes will teach students ways to further investigate the potential sources of heat loss theirassessments suggested. The students will work with Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County staff to gointo the homes and completeweatherproofing and safety plansto alleviate the issues found.Funded through the CommunityFoundation’s W. Barclay andFrederick C. Brasch Endowmentthat focuses on addressing theneeds of seniors, the CollectiveImpact Grant is a three-year,$150,000 grant. One goal of thegrant is that projects are replicablein other locations. Students demonstrate how the thermal energy camera finds heat loss through walls and ceilings, as well as plastic bags! 2016 Annual Report • 5

Each also went through a strategic planning process aimed at better preparing their organizations for stability and sustainability. The organizations began with different strengths, weaknesses and experience. Urbana Neighborhood Connections Center, the youngest of the three, made significant progress during the process and will complete Phase I in early 2017. Isak Griffiths, Courage Connection Executive Director explained, “Phase I helped our staff and Board come together to identify a concrete and unified vision of what is next for our agency, a workable plan for how to move forward, and measurable tasks to make the work achievable for staff and visible to the Board.” “I have been very encouraged by the level of engagement from all the board members. They have been willing to learn and willing to embrace new concepts,” said Joan Dixon of the Phase I process. “I look forward to working with these groups through Phases II and III which focus on the board’s role in both short and long-term fundraising,” she added. “…with unprecedented challenges facing human services agencies across the state, Phase I has helped us focus on moving forward with intention instead of simply having to react, react and react.” —Isak Griffiths, Courage Connection Executive Director Courage Connection Board VP Brice Hutchcraft enthusiastically takes Joan’s hand-off of the Phase I check.6 • Community Foundation of East Central Illinois
