Join us in serving the needs of
the citizens of Rock Island.

Our mission is simple: we're local people, coming together to support one another. Rock Island is our home, and we want to make it better for everyone who lives here. Since 1967, the Rock Island Community Foundation has been distributing funds to the groups that make Rock Island a better place to live. We are dedicated to supporting local charities to promote local opportunities for all Rock Island's citizens.

Since 1967, we've been a group of Rock Island citizens, working together to improve our community. Groups like Spring Forward inspire our work.



RICF helps organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mississippi Valley build brighter futures. Your generous donations make it all possible.

Request Funding


Local causes are close to our hearts. If you're involved with a charity like Youth Hope's Camp Summit, consider applying for RICF funding this year.


"We provide a welcoming, safe, and caring environment for children to grow and flourish. Without the help of friends such as you, this program would not be able to provide this fantastic opportunity for children."
