- Contribute to any of our existing funds that match your charitable interests.
- Support your community with a gift to the GIVE360 Fund, and have an active role in determining annual grants to the local community.
- Help support the work of the Foundation by contributing to the McHenry County Community Operational Fund.
- Encourage your favorite charity to establish an agency fund to provide ongoing support for their work.
- Attend community foundation events and workshops to learn more about estate planning, charitable giving, building endowments and other related topics.
- Tell your friends about the McHenry County Community Foundation and the services that we provide.
