ABOUT US

The Elgin-St.Thomas Community Foundation works with caring individuals to strengthen our communities.  We do this by matching donors with their giving interests, creating a lasting legacy that will impact change today, tomorrow and forever.  Donor dollars are invested in an endowment fund and the interest generated each year is then granted to charitable organizations across Elgin County.  
For Elgin. Forever. Since 2003
