Our Offices

Forefront’s statewide presence is anchored by our three regional offices: Chicago, Central, and West Central Illinois. Each office has specific resources and programs that serve the needs of its local community, allowing Forefront to best empower nonprofits and foundations on their own terms.

Our offices are located in downtown Chicago, Springfield, and Monmouth, each with different hours and facilities. Our online services, Knowledge Center, and Library team are available to Members anywhere across Illinois.

See below for more information about each of our locations.
