Investing into our community since 1994 $2.1M + funds available

Through the generous contributions from residents and businesses of our community, the Tuscola Community Foundation has over $2M in both unrestricted and restricted funds available.

Unrestricted Funds

When donors make no stipulations about how their financial donations are to be used, their gift goes into one of the Foundation’s unrestricted funds. Unrestricted funds may be used by the Foundation to support a grant, or a charitable contribution to an agency. The following list shows just a few of the agencies that the Foundation has supported through its unrestricted funds.

SAM Food Pantry

Tuscola Community Unit School District #301

Douglas County Health Department

Restricted Funds

In some cases, donors may have a specific program or place where they would like their donation to go. And the Foundation is set up to honor these requests. When a gift has a specified use by the donor, it goes into a restricted fund and is allocated only for the purpose intended by the donor. The following is a list of the Foundation’s Restricted Funds.
