For good. OUR VISION: To raise the quality of life throughout east central Illinois Since 1972 when the Community Foundation was established, it has distributed over $15 million in charitable grants to over 400 nonprofit organizations that work to improve the quality of life in communities throughout the area. These charitable distributions include designated gifts from endowments, field of interest funds, donor-advised funds, organizational endowments and scholarships. 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.

2015 Brought Interesting Times The Community Foundation had another interesting year. In January we received two new funds valued at about $2.7 million— and in December we finalized the purchase of our office building at 307 W. University Avenue. As always, the market kept us guessing throughout most of the year. In the end…Joan Dixon and Brooke Didier StarksIllinois Budget Impasse Hit Local Nonprofits HardWhile there was hope up until the last minute that there would be a budget in 2015, many social service agencies,dependent upon state payments for services or grants, spent the end of 2015 developing plans for staff, operationsand program reductions.The Foundation helped four organizations with Program Related Investment loans in 2015. We anticipateeven more requests for assistance in 2016. Our concern for the long-term effects of the impasse on nonprofitemployees, residents needing services and the state continues to grow.Collective Impact Partners SelectedThe Collective Impact project promises to help senior citizens living in Hope Meadows whose homes desperatelyneed repairs, weatherproofing and accessibility improvements. It will also provide meaningful skill-building forRantoul High School students and the personal satisfaction of knowing their work made a difference. As the thirdpartner, Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County will move ahead with its goal to provide more affordableand safe housing for seniors.Building Better Boards Up and RunningCourage Connection, Hope Meadows and Urbana Neighborhood Connections Center each started the first phaseof the Building Better Boards Grant process. While the three organizations are very different in many ways, all theexecutive directors and board members have been excited about the process. It has been gratifying to watch eachboard evolve into a more cohesive group from month to month. See what participants are saying on pages 4-5.Plans for Our New HomeWe are excited to have a permanent home, demonstrating our commitment to deliveringlong-term benefits to our area. We are excited to begin working with some localentrepreneurs and “philantropreneurs” to use the additional space as a nonprofit incubator,encouraging innovative thinking and fresh ideas for solving complex challenges.Joan Dixon Brooke Didier StarksPresident & CEO Chair, Board of Trustees 2015 Annual Report • 1CFECI_2015_Report2.indd 3 4/15/16 11:50 AM

Nonprofit Excellence Begins Our Missionwith Boards, Best Practices& Leadership To be a leader and major catalyst for long-termBuilding Better Boards Grant Process philanthropic assistanceMoving Through Phase I to the residents of east central Illinois.In the spring, the first group of organizations named as recipients of theBuilding Better Boards Grants were named. Courage Connection,Urbana Neighborhood Connections Center, and Hope Meadows in Rantoulbegan Board Building, the first phase of the process.Joan Dixon led a series of meetings with eachorganization’s Executive Director and board to reviewbylaws, financial and other documents, as well as toclearly define the separate role of the Board and the staff.Following are brief summaries and participant comments.Urbana Neighborhood Connection CenterFounder and Executive Director of Urbana NeighborhoodConnection Center (UNCC), Janice Mitchell, establishedher “baby” a little over seven years ago. UNCC is acommunity learning center that daily serves 50 to 60youth from K through 12th grade from Urbana public schools during afterschool hours. In addition, 35high school juniors and seniors spend weekends preparing for college and/or career transitions, and 80 to90 youth and teens in summer enrichment camp..Mitchell shared, “I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Building Better Boards process.Unlike other seminars, it is local, realistic, practical and tailored to what UNCC needs to do. We all sitaround the table with Joan and I know help and follow-up are always close at hand.”Cloydia Larimore, Urbana Neighborhood Connection Center board member, said “We’ve been a smalland pretty informal board. This process is helping us think through what this board needs to do so thatUNCC achieves its mission. We are focusing much more now as a team on what we need to do to makeour organization stable and a premiere place for kids to be.”Mitchell remembers, “The Community Foundation has been with me every step of the way sinceUNCC was only my idea. We all trust Joan and believe we are learning exactly what we need to do tomove forward. Having a strong, focused board will take a lot of pressure off of me.”Hope MeadowsHope Meadows is an innovative multi-generational residential community; a five-blocksmall-town neighborhood established in Rantoul on 22 acres. Residents belong to oneof three groups often at risk of being marginalized in American society—kids caughtin the child welfare system, families that adopt children with special behavioral andemotional needs, and retirees who are seeking continued purpose in their daily lives.4 • Community Foundation of East Central IllinoisCFECI_2015_Report2.indd 6 4/15/16 11:50 AM

2015 acHieVementSIn April 2014, Hank Gamel became the fifth executive director of Hope Meadows, the original Generations of Hopeinter-generational community founded by sociologist Brenda Eheart in 1994.Gamel explains, “When I started in my position, our board had been experiencing constant turnover. When we wereselected to be a part of Building Better Boards, we were recruiting several new board members, so the timing wasperfect. The board members have responded well to having a clearer understanding of their roles and responsibilities,as well as the knowledge that their teamwork is crucial to the vitality of our Hope Meadows community.”Board member Diane Michaels agrees. “I have seen our board meetings evolve and our members focusing on theirroles as a team, responsible and excited about how they can help Hope Meadows continue its mission.”Courage ConnectionThe legacy agencies of Courage Connection began as grassroots, volunteer-runresponses to local needs. A Woman’s Place (AWP) opened as the first batteredwomen’s shelter in the country and Women’s Emergency Shelter of ChampaignCounty (WESCC) was an effort to address CU’s lack of homeless facilities forwomen and children (became The Center for Women in Transition-CWT). In2010, The CWT acquired AWP, creating a continuum of services connectingwomen in need to services from emergency shelter to affordable permanenthousing through one agency—Courage Connection.Isak Griffiths was hired as the Executive Director of Courage Connection in June 2014. Board President MichaelUjcich explained that the organization had been without an executive director for some time, and while the decisionto re-brand the merged organizations as Courage Connection had been made, Isak and the board faced the culturalchallenge of bringing everyone together.“Before we started the Building Better Boards process, our board was a little academic and a little social servicesoriented. Now I think we are moving forward as a professional board that no longer feels mystery and uncertaintyabout what they should be doing. I believe that our board-building work will improve our agency in two ways: ourboard members now know and understand their roles and responsibilities, and they are working collaboratively todevelop strategies to take us into the future,” Griffiths said.Ujcich echoed that sentiment, “Joan has encouraged us to bring our individual talents to the board table to contributeto solutions. Doing the SWOT analysis was very interesting and made us mindful of opportunities we hadn’t thoughtabout. We’ve learned a lot about how ‘best practices’ lead to success—and we believe the work we are doing has givenus the chance to put Courage Connection on that path to continued success.”Next StepsMonthly meetings with each organizationcontinue. At the successful conclusionof Phase I, each organization will receivea $5,000 unrestricted grant from theCommunity Foundation. Then, each willhave the opportunity to begin Phases II &III with the focus on the Board’s role infundraising.CFECI_2015_Report2.indd 7 2015 Annual Report • 5 4/15/16 11:50 AM

Promoting Philanthropy is What We DoDonors depend on the Community Foundation to ensure that their gifts are used according to their wishes—and forprojects and programs that truly make a positive difference in the quality of life for residents. Nonprofits depend on usto help them become the best they can be.Leading Commitment toNonprofit ExcellenceUnderstanding the current and future needs of bothresidents and nonprofits in the communities we serve isan essential part of the Community Foundation’s role inthe region. Working closely with nonprofit organizationsto encourage use of best practices in both operations andgovernance enables us to give current information todonors who support them.In 2015, Community Foundation: • Attended nearly 60 nonprofit events in our service area • Facilitated many evening and weekend “Board Roles” and “Responsibilities and Strategic Planning” work sessions • Hosted monthly Executive Director Support Group meetings focused on discussing and developing solutions to shared problems • Hosted “New A,B,C Grant Structure & How a Building Better Boards Grant Can Strengthen Your Organization” for about 45 nonprofits • Selected the organizations and led 15 Building Better Boards training sessions • Co-hosted over 50 executive directors and board members “Financial Responsibilities of Board Members”Supporting Community PrideIronically, it was exciting for the CommunityFoundation in the summer of 2015 to see a big redfire truck pull over on University Avenue in front ofour building. No fires, but Brian Ball, co-chair of theChampaign Fire Department’s 150th AnniversaryCelebration Committee, dropped off envelopes full ofdonations to the special project fund for the event.The Community Foundation frequently holds special projectfunds for groups hoping to accept tax deductible donationsfor community benefit—another way the Foundation helpssupport grass roots efforts to bring worthwhile events andprojects to our area. 6 • Community Foundation of East Central Illinois 4/15/16 11:50 AMCFECI_2015_Report2.indd 8

2015 acHieVementSOur Values: Philanthropy Supporting Collaborations that Get Results We are a leader in promoting The Community Foundation participates with community coalitions, philanthropy in an impartial, organizations and institutions to develop efficient and innovative solutions to unbiased, ethical way, with a complex and persistent problems. commitment to inclusiveness. CUC2C We bring together people and resources to identify and Champaign Urbana Cradle 2 Career was started in the fall of 2013 as an address present and emerging effort to bring together a community-wide collaboration that engages all residents in a common vision of a CU community where every child achieves community needs. and every graduate succeeds. The effort is aligning existing community resources with expertise in and passion for each key goal area. • Kindergarten Readiness (KR), the first Goal Team started, includes 20 cross-sector organizations working together to increase the percentage of children who are ready to learn when they enter kindergarten—the first key milestone to future success. The KR team organized pilot readiness summer and fall workshops in 2015 that familiarized about 60 children on the Unit 4 and 116 pre-kindergarten waiting lists and their parents with home-based activities aimed at getting kids ready. • Workforce Development (WD), the second Goal Team, includes 15 cross-sector experts seeking to increase the percentage of workforce-ready students who have “the academic foundation, technical ability, work habits and interpersonal skills to succeed.” A five-year $5 million federal grant pilot program, set to launch in spring 2016, will be administered by ISU professor, Ani Yazedjian and implemented through 15 county sites, including the CUC2C network and coalition. The pilot will come into the community to provide workforce readiness for 15-to 24-year-olds. The Community Foundation has been involved in CUC2C since 2013 and serves as the fiscal agent, and on both the Steering Committee and Leadership Council. Summer Construction In its eighth year, the Summer Construction Program continues to garner support and high school student applicants interested in learning basic building skills. The program promotes understanding of building basics, communication and applied mathematics in construction. It also emphasizes soft skills that employers expect from work-ready employees. The 2015 partnership Education for Employment, Champaign Public Schools and Habitat for Humanity had kids working on two home rehabilitation projects. Photos show the 2015 participants working top to bottom on one of two Habitat for Humanity homes—training future workers by building homes for real families! In 2008, the Community Foundation awarded the new program a $1,000 grant for tools and has awarded an additional $31,000 in grants since that time. 2015 Annual Report • 7CFECI_2015_Report2.indd 9 4/15/16 11:50 AM
