The Foundation has long supported hospitals and other institutions providing health care services to people in East Central Illinois. In recent years, we have focused increasingly on preventative health, and, in particular, healthy food.
In 2014, The Foundation went through a planning process that involved extensive research. It led us to clarify our intentions in an overarching theme we call Land, Health, Community. We encourage applications through the Lumpkin Family Fund process from any and all organizations across East Central Illinois wishing to take part in the local, healthy food movement.
As part of Land, Health, Community, The Foundation will solicit a small number of applications in Coles County that help activate organizations and networks interested in encouraging physical activity; land protection and conservation; and helping organizations, businesses become leaders in the green economy. We would love to extend this opportunity to all of East Central Illinois but our financial resources are inadequate to spread across the many communities of the region.
