Who We Are

The Community Foundation for McHenry County is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity created by and for the people of McHenry County. We work to fulfill charitable interests, encourage generosity, and to enhance the lives of all residents of McHenry County, now and for generations to come. We address community needs through donor gifts, and provide leadership on key community issues. Funds can be established to be granted immediately or to last into perpetuity – to support community needs today or to ensure there is support for good, forever.

The Community Foundation for McHenry County is committed to diversity and inclusion in everything that we do. We exist to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of McHenry County. We look for charitable organizations, board members and business partners that include individuals of varied backgrounds, beliefs and perspectives. We encourage all organizations we work with to recognize and embrace the benefits of equity.
