New service to “bridge people who care with causes that matter”!

Grundy County (IL) Nonprofit Wish List

Nonprofits and local units of government (schools, libraries, fire districts, villages, police departments) are invited to add items to our community Nonprofit Wish List.  Like a bridal/baby registry, nonprofits enter items they need at their agencies and the public can view the Wish List and purchases items using their credit/debit card.

If you are the public and want to view the Wish List, please go to

 then click the DONATE button in the top right corner.  The first tab is “Online Donations to Funds” where you can donate to any of the funds at CFGC.  The second tab is “Nonprofit Wish Lists.”


If you are a nonprofit serving Grundy County (IL) or local unit of government who wants to add items to the Wish List

Please first assemble:

  • Organization
  • Short Description
  • Long Description (describe how this item will benefit Grundy County only)
  • Amount requested
  • Photo (File must be minimum size of 300 x 300 pixels.)
  • Organization Website
  • Contact Name, Email and Phone
  • (optional) PDF document with additional information

Then click

Once these fields have been completed, the grantee can click Next to review and submit their request.  Photo can be your org’s logo or can be a photo of the item you want to purchase (computer, printer, food, etc.).   PLEASE DO THIS ACTION FOR EACH ITEM YOU WANT FUNDING FOR.

If you do not see your nonprofit listed, we need to add you from the back end of the software, so please email us at [email protected] or [email protected]

Once you have submitted your item(s), we need to approve it on the back end before it goes public.  If you don’t see it within 24 hours, please email us.  You may be asked to edit your request if it does not benefit only Grundy County, Illinois.  Checks are mailed at the beginning of each month for donations received on your behalf in the previous month.

If you have questions, you can email us or call 815-941-0852
