Grants of up to $10,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations, government entities, and schools for collaborative projects and programs to benefit eligible communities. Funding is intended for activities that address needs within the community while promoting inclusivity. Each proposal must be submitted by at least two organizations working together to benefit Skokie residents.

The Skokie Community Foundation (SCF) invites proposals in which organizations collaborate for the benefit of Skokie residents. SCF seeks to invest in organizations and projects that are poised to make a difference in the lives of Skokie residents and strengthen the community beyond the grant period. This year, SCF seeks to fund proposals that will meet a community need while making Skokie more inclusive. An inclusive community is a place where all individuals and groups feel welcomed and are encouraged to take part in community life. Differences (identity, race, nationality, etc.) are respected and valued, allowing community members to live in dignity. These proposals should also be scalable and sustainable.

Applications may be based upon new initiatives, pilot projects, or continuing improvements to projects that have shown long-term, positive impact.

SCF requests proposals that can be scaled, will make Skokie a more inclusive community and be sustainable.

  • Preference will be given to proposals that directly address how the project will benefit Skokie residents.
  • Preference will be given to on-going projects rather than one-day, stand-alone events.
  • Preference will be given to projects that are sustainable.
