IAC Foundation


The Illinois Arts Council Foundation serves the Illinois Arts Council constituency by augmenting limited state funds for the purpose of outreach and communication initiatives within the arts community and the general public.


The Illinois Arts Council Foundation was established in 1967. The Foundation's mission is accomplished through the capacity to receive and disperse private donations not authorized for use by a state agency.


Contributions to the Illinois Arts Council Foundation are used to increase awareness of Illinois Arts Council programs and services through publications, public forums, promotional activities and events. To make a contribution, contact Ishara Standley at (312) 814-6794 or email
