Forefront advocates on every level for the the social impact sector of Illinois. During the 2023 Foundations on the Hill in Washington, D.C., Forefront, in community with Illinois foundation executives and staff, was able to meet with 12 Congressional officials and their staff to share the impactful stories of social impact throughout Illinois and educate them on the unique and vital role that social impact work and charitable giving plays in Illinois. For a full recap of #FOTH2023, visit Forefront's On the Forefront blog.
The Forefront Library is an invaluable community resource that offers free access to over 3,000 social impact sector resources, including various databases, research guides, and library webinars. With the guidance and assistance of Forefront librarians, Forefront members receive individual assistance like prospect research on foundations and individuals, samples and templates, salary surveys and job descriptions, and general research on philanthropic and nonprofit topics.
Forefront's fiscal sponsorship is a statewide service that offers administrative and technical assistance, fiduciary oversight, and human resources, for individuals and nonprofits engaged in charitable work in Illinois. By providing these invaluable tools and services, Forefront has worked together with numerous organizations and individuals who need help to meet their mission and enrich the lives of every Illinoisan.
