Galesburg Community Foundation 2024 Turnout Grant Cycle Opens May 1


Galesburg Community Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the 2024 Turnout Grant Cycle.

Galesburg Community Foundation awards grants to nonprofits serving the region through the annual grants cycle, where funders can learn about the work of local nonprofits and support the causes they care about, elevating the culture of philanthropy in the region.

The Turnout is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit or public charities, including schools and government agencies serving Knox and Warren Counties. The online application opens at noon on Wednesday, May 1, and closes at 4 pm on Wednesday, May 15. Information on application requirements can be found at, which is also where the grant application will be available on May 1.

“The Turnout Grant Cycle is designed to be efficient, accessible, and flexible,” said Jillian Isaacson, Galesburg Community Foundation Director of Grants & Programs. “It aids nonprofits as they respond to and identify new opportunities to continue their important work.”

The Turnout supports the needs of our region and addresses opportunities to make our communities stronger. Applications may include programs and missions in the areas of:

  • Education & Workforce Development: Programs and missions that attract, retain, train, educate, and sustain residents to revive the economic climate in communities.
  • Health & Human Service: Programs and missions that align, expand, collaborate, and maximize resources for positive sustainable community, individual, and family health and social services that improve the quality of life for all residents.
  • Community Enhancement & Art and Culture: Programs and missions that improve access, amenity, and quality of life and welcome and encourage population growth and economic stimulus.
  • Nonprofit Capacity, Mission Sustainability, and Reinvention: Programs and missions that inspire and encourage the untapped potential of the nonprofit sector. 

“Organizations may ask for dollars pertaining to their needs to continue pushing their missions forward and serving our communities,” continued Isaacson. “Whether for capacity, general operating, or programmatic needs, the Turnout Grant Cycle is a great opportunity to support our nonprofits in an impactful way.”

The Turnout Grant Cycle is funded through the Community Foundation’s Impact Fund, which is comprised of unrestricted resources from generous community donors, and from individuals who hold charitable funds at the Community Foundation. The Turnout connects community members who love their community with local nonprofits providing valuable services in Knox and Warren Counties.
