About the Foundation
The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation was established in December 1999 as an independent foundation with a $225 million endowment provided by Commonwealth Edison.
Our mission is to improve energy efficiency, advance the development of renewable energy resources and protect natural areas for people in communities all across Illinois.
Over the past thirteen years, the Foundation has steadily grown its support of clean energy investments in Illinois through a widening array of programs. To date, we have awarded over 3,900 grants providing $191 million to Illinois nonprofit organizations, schools, municipalities and other local and state government agencies. The grants support activities in every one of Illinois' 102 counties.
