Foundation for Focus House and Community Programming

The Foundation for Focus House and Community Programming

The Foundation for Focus House and Community Programming exists to receive and administer contributions, gifts, memorials and bequests for the exclusive purpose of enhancing programming at Focus House and offering community programs that enhance, enrich and supplement individuals involved in Court Services.  The Foundation also allows Court Services to apply for grants and participate in forms of fundraising other wise not available.

The creation of the Foundation was recommended by the Focus House long-range planning committee in 2004 and the Foundation was officially established in February 2005. The Foundation continued to grow from year to year . By 2013, the Foundation had greatly expanded to better serve the increasing needs of youth and families in Ogle County, in a response to this growth the Board of Directors voted to change the name to The Foundation for Focus House and Community Programming.

The Foundation For Focus House and Community Programming is a not-for-profit, IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.
