GALESBURG, Ill. (June 29, 2021) ─ Galesburg Community Foundation is pleased to announce the local nonprofit organizations receiving grants through their annual grant cycle, The Turnout. The Turnout Grant Cycle combines dollars from generous community donors who hold charitable funds at the Community Foundation along with dollars from the Community Foundation’s Impact Fund to fully fund nonprofit proposals providing services that better our region.
