Rochelle Area Community Foundation announces fall grant cycle


ROCHELLE – The Rochelle Area Community Foundation (RACF) will open a fall grant cycle for all non-profit partners on Wednesday, Sept. 1 through Thursday, Sept. 30.

To apply, please visit and hover over the “Grants” tab. Simply click “Apply”, log-in, fill out the application and submit.

RACF is looking for one non-profit partner who has an innovative program or project that will have a significant impact on the community. The grant request should be between $12,000 and $15,000. RACF will announce the grant recipient in Oct. 2021.

“We were fortunate to fully fund every grant request during the 2021 spring grant cycle. We had some money leftover and our board felt strongly that we reinvest that money back into our community,” Kathy Hollonbeck, chair of the grants committee, said.

“Opening a fall grant cycle is unique to the foundation and we are excited to learn about new ideas our non-profit partners have that will have a profound impact on the population they serve” Emily Anaya, executive director, said.
