grant program


We invest our resources to build strong communities by strengthening early childhood education, protecting natural lands and waterways, and promoting a robust system of employment development.

Grand Victoria Foundation currently funds three distinct programs: our Core Grants support Illinois-based nonprofit organizations working to find systemic solutions; Elgin Grantworks provides general operating support to  Elgin-based organizations; and Vital Lands Illinois funds land acquisition for conservation of critical parcels in Illinois. Please read the Guidelines to determine if your project is a fit with any of our programs.
