Mission Statement


For a brief moment in time the earth is ours - not to waste or own - but to share with creatures great and small.  The mission of the Illinois Conservation Foundation, and the partners with whom we work, is to preserve and enhance our natural and cultural heritage by fostering and supporting ecological, educational, and outdoor recreational programs for the benefit of all people now and for generations to come.  In carrying out this mission, the Illinois Conservation Foundation inspires today's youth - tomorrow's leaders - by providing quality outdoor and conservation education programs that instill a life-long interest in conservation, outdoor recreation and sustainability.

The Illinois Conservation Foundation is a 501C3 nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.  All funds are held in private accounts. The ICF is not subject to the Public Funds Investment Act (20 ILCS 880/20) which places limitations on the types of investments in which a public agency may invest funds.
