“ For it is in giving that we receive. ”
–St. Francis of Assisi
Illinois has the oldest community college in the United States. Joliet Junior college was established in 1901.
The Moline Foundation is located in Moline, Illinois. Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River, Moline’s arts, parks, culture, commerce and industry are alive and well.
But Moline and the surrounding area has another side.
Moline and its region also face the challenges of a major city: illiteracy, poverty, hunger and crime cling to our diverse communities. From the smallest of villages to our largest metropolitan area. a lack of education, access to higher paying jobs, and sustained funding for our non-profit partners plague our brilliant landscape in the Mississippi Valley.
The Moline Foundation was established in 1953 to help strengthen Moline’s nonprofit community and encourage local giving to help contend with these critical issues facing the communities in the seven-county region served by the Moline Foundation. We hope that you will join us in our efforts.
In this section you'll learn more about Moline and the surrounding area and see why the Moline Foundation is necessary, timely, and yes, historic.
100% of your donation directly supports our community.
