Veterans: Frequently Asked Questions

I am down on my luck and having some having some financial problems. Can you help me?

The Foundation only funds 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, not individuals. If you are a veteran looking for direct assistance in transitioning into civilian life, we recommend contacting Illinois Joining Forces, a network of Illinois organizations ready to connect you to the right resources.  
How does my organization apply for a grant?

The Veterans Program is a proactive grantmaking program by which grantees are solicited through a request for proposals (RFP) process. At the present time, there is no active RFP. Please check back for updated information.
