Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation
Providing financial support for clean energy projects in Illinois for over 20 years.
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 and use of renewable energy resources, and protect natural areas and wildlife habitat in communities all across Illinois.
The Foundation is proud of the positive impact it has had over the last 24 years. As of December 1, 2023, the Foundation is not accepting applications for new grants. All previously awarded grants will be funded subject to the provisions of each grant agreement. The Foundation will provide additional information regarding its future activities in the coming months.
