Guidelines & Application Procedures



EFS Foundation was established in 1998 to help and support charitable organizations designed to strengthen a broad spectrum of community projects and programs in Elgin and close surrounding communities.

A twelve member Board of Directors governs the Foundation. The Board is responsible for establishing the policies for grants or donations consistent with the stated purpose for which the Foundation was established. It is anticipated that no more than 20% of each yearís total grants may benefit any one eligible organization or project.

The Board of Directors of the Foundation will consider grant requests from all eligible organizations committed to using the funds within Elgin and close neighboring communities. In addition, the Board will make awards and other distributions that meet the purpose of the Foundation. The Board will fund those projects or organizations that can demonstrate the ability to cost effectively deliver services and benefits that meet the needs of the Foundationís service area.
