Dear Donors and Friends,

As you know, the unfolding COVID-19 situation is very fluid and requires careful consideration by all community members. Out of caution for our staff and visitors we have decided to operate The Community Foundation for McHenry County remotely beginning Monday, March 16.

  • We will continue to process grants and gifts and respond to your questions.
  • Please contact us at or call 815-338-4483. We will check voicemail often.
  • Necessary meetings will be held via conference call.
  • Check for general updates and other contact information at and follow us on Facebook at
  • We will remain in close contact with community leaders and nonprofits to understand developing needs. We will communicate changes and updates via this website and on our social media. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you for your wonderful support,

Deb Thielen
