The Community Action Foundation of Northern Illinois was founded in 2013 to address the growing need for the private sector and local stakeholders to partner with Community Action Partnership of Lake County to assist struggling families as they return to self-sufficiency.


The Foundation applies market-based strategies through CAP social ennterprises to meet key organizational goals. The social enterprises provide job opportunities and income enabling the Foundation to be more innovative in our service approach.

 

What does “giving back” mean to you? Is it dropping off non- perishable foods to the local food pantry; volunteering to help tutor economically disadvantaged children or donating money to help families get back on their feet? 

 

Since 2013 Community Action Foundation of Northern Illinois has supported the work and mission of Community Action Partnership of Lake County. For 50 years, CAPOLC, a nonprofit organization, has administered programs that support their mission to reduce the causes and effects of poverty, promote self sufficiency of individuals and families with low incomes and improve the standard of living in

Lake County, IL.

 

Each year, the number of clients served through community action continues to increase as well as the private donations needed to support these services.

 

Community Action Foundation of Northern Illinois provides a Giving Portfolio that allows our donors a vehicle through which to express your personal values and that will benefit your immediate community or the greater northern IL area. The Community Action Foundation of Northern Illinois provides careful stewardship of your donation to ensure the greatest impact.
