Message to Our Community Dear friends - we are pleased to present you with our 2017 annual report highlighting the mission and services of your Community Foundation. It is our joy and privilege to be part of Shaping the Community Through Generosity thanks to our donors! Highlights from a very full year include: Endowments & Donor Services – With over $2 million donated and 23 new funds started in 2017, we continued to witness and partner with people throughout DeKalb County who use their financial resources to support organizations and people making a difference in the lives of others. Please see our ‘Year in Review’ on page 3 for community impact highlights! Frank Roberts 2017-18 Board President

Stewardship – Strong market growth (17.6% return in 2017) in our portfolio, not surprisingly, contributed to us surpassing $50 million in charitable assets – quite a benchmark! We also spent a significant part of the year working on updating our Strategic Plan – including hosting Community Gatherings, which were intentional opportunities to gather with donors, supporters, and leaders throughout DeKalb County. See highlights of our finances on page 4. Grantmaking – Our Board responds to needs and opportunities throughout DeKalb County through a number of grant programs. We have the honor of distributing ‘donor directed’ grants – in which donors have entrusted us with funds that directly benefit the organizations and causes they intended. We also are thankful to the many donors who contribute to funds that allow for ‘board directed’ grants – allowing them to give where funding is needed the most! Check out pages 8-11 for stories of how ‘Community Impact Funds’ make a difference.

Daniel Templin

Executive Director


Community Initiatives – Our commitment to strategically address key issues in our community continues to grow.

Grants in Action – Community Impact Funds Malta Township Public Library Shines With Community Support Helping today…Shaping tomorrow. “Since completion of the project, people coming in have expressed their pleasure with the updated look of the remodeled original building and how well the addition and storage barn blends in. Since the renovation, there has been a significant increase in the number of individuals using the library, with 27.3% more this year than last.” Peggy Wogen, Director, Malta Township Public Library

The newly remodeled Malta Township Public Library.

Every year, libraries around DeKalb County have been able to address their growing and pressing needs with Community Foundation grant support. After extensive input from its community in 2005, the Malta Township Public Library created a four-phase building plan and in 2007 launched the construction of a new addition to its original building which was built in 1922. Since then, the Community Foundation has leveraged broad community support for the library building project with a total of $32,000 in grants to construct the addition to the library, replace brick and mortar, and install new windows in the original building. With an additional $3,000 grant in 2017, the Malta Library addressed the final phase of its building plan by constructing a storage barn capable of housing library materials on-site for the first time in decades. Anticipating the retirement of its director of 15 years, the library is now poised to transition into the next era of leadership serving its community.


Grants in Action – Community Impact Funds Grants Transform Grassy Field in Waterman into Muingan Park Helping today…Shaping tomorrow. “There are endless opportunities for community-based activities in this space. The creation of the park, the wooded area, and the walking path have been a great blessing to the community. My family and I really appreciate all the work of the Waterman Enhancement Group and all their efforts toward our community!” Alysa Amy, Waterman Resident The walking path, shade trees, and benches offer an inviting spot to exercise, recreate, and relax for the residents of Waterman and the surrounding area.

In 2013, five engaged and motivated members of the Waterman community saw a need to improve their community both aesthetically and recreationally and formed the Waterman Enhancement Group (WEG). This growing grassroots organization prioritized creating a new park out of a vacant lot that would be accessible to the majority of the 2,000 members of the Waterman Community living north of Route 30. WEG partnered with Waterman middle school students in a “Name the Park” contest to create Muingan Park after the Pottawatomie name for “wolf.” Over a three-year period, starting in 2016, the Community Foundation supported the three-phase park development with $19,500 in grants. The enhancement group continues to engage with the community in fundraising, researching, and planning for development of the green space. Along with the Community Foundation, collaborating partners include the Village of Waterman, Waterman Lions Club, Waterman Business Association, Green Ridge HOA, Monsanto, and Watermen Middle School students.


Grants in Action – Community Impact Funds Community Economic Development Grants Benefit Communities Across DeKalb County Helping today…Shaping tomorrow.

DeKalb Co. Government $ 20,000

In 2016, the Community Foundation Board of Directors decided to set aside $300,000 over three years, generated from Community Impact Funds, to provide $20,000 for each community in DeKalb County. The goal is to incentivize and support communities in planning for and implementing priority projects that support local economic development. Since then, seven villages and towns in DeKalb County have received Community Economic Development Grants. Grant support is for both planning and project implementation. The entire $20,000 for each community remains available through early 2019.

City of DeKalb


Genoa SOARing

Village of Malta


With a grant received in 2014 from the Community Foundation, the City of Genoa and Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce identified and prioritized goals during their Genoa SOARing economic development planning project. The City of Genoa used its $20,000 Community Economic Development Grant to enhance the riverfront in Citizen’s Park along the Kishwaukee River. This riverfront enhancement will help to support and grow community events such as Volksfest.

The City of DeKalb used its $9,000 planning grant to work with community members and the NIU Center for Governmental Studies to review and rank initiatives and projects in the City’s 2025 Strategic Plan. The City plans to use the remaining $11,000 to implement one of the prioritized projects. Shabbona Forward

The Village of Shabbona used its $20,000 Community Economic Development Grant to work with NIU Center for Governmental Studies to conduct an in-depth study and road map for Shabbona and the surrounding area. Residents and community supporters have organized themselves around specific opportunities and activities to increase the visibility and vibrancy of the Shabbona community.

Community members provide input during one of several planning sessions.

“Without the Economic Development Grant, we would still be talking about ideas. Instead, we are now beginning to implement ideas. The grant and the planning process has been the catalyst to make something happen within our community.” Jerry Foster, Director of Business Development, Resource Bank, NA Chair for Shabbona Economic Development Committee Shabbona residents gather for large and small group discussions during their community planning process.


Community Initiatives - Kindergarten Readiness Preparing our Children for School and Life Success The Community Foundation recognizes the importance of supporting young children and their families through one of the most challenging transitions in life, from early childhood to kindergarten. Early childhood experiences play a significant role in a child’s development and the degree to which a child is ready to learn and ready for kindergarten. In 2016, board members and professionals working in early care and kindergarten education formed the Kindergarten Readiness Working Group. As a result of this working group and with grants from the Community Foundation: l

Members of the Kindergarten Readiness Working Group present a check to the Regional Office of Education to engage families in the transition of pre-K students into kindergarten. Funding will also support ongoing collaboration and professional development opportunities for early care and kindergarten teachers.



The DeKalb County Kindergarten Readiness Study was completed in August 2017, providing background information to launch and inform the discussion of how DeKalb County may best prepare our children for success in school and life. A survey of pre-K and kindergarten teachers and professionals suggests the 71% of our county’s children are ready for kindergarten. Working groups continue to form around priority issue areas such as: l Kindergarten Readiness and Early Learning Toolkits for families of young children l Enhancing early childhood screening throughout DeKalb County to include screening for childhood trauma l Engaging young families through enhancing access to and use of home visiting resources

“I’m excited to be part of this community effort to support our children and their families socially, emotionally, and academically. Understanding the challenges families face and providing them with community resources will support their efforts to ensure their children’s first school experiences are positive ones.” Caitlin Lee, Executive Director, The Growing Place

Community Initiatives - Kindergarten Readiness l


The DeKalb County Regional Office of Education and its Early Learning Consultant is coordinating working groups to: l Establish and implement the process and framework for the transition from early learning to kindergarten, including family engagement l Facilitate ongoing collaboration between early learning, pre-school, and kindergarten educators l Provide evidence based professional development opportunities for early learning, pre-school, and kindergarten educators. l Determine common assessment tools for kindergarten readiness in DeKalb County The Community Foundation is providing grants for Kindergarten Readiness Toolkits for kindergarten programs throughout DeKalb County.

Funding for the Kindergarten Readiness initiative is made possible through 20 CommunityWorks field of interest funds held at the Community Foundation and established from 2004-2011.

One of many Kindergarten Readiness planning meetings designed to capture ideas, feedback, and facilitate discussion among local teachers and educators. Kindergarten Readiness Toolkit Grants will provide toolkits for families and educators to better prepare children for kindergarten.

Thank you to those who have invested in our community engagement work. See a full listing of CommunityWorks funds on pages 21-22.

Donor Stories Fund Dedicates Support to Malta Community Built through tax-deductible contributions from friends, neighbors, businesses, and community members, the Malta Community Endowment Fund provides support for projects and services dedicated to improving the quality of life in Malta. Created through generous support from twelve of its community members, the Malta Fund is the very first fund at the Community Foundation dedicated solely to a community in DeKalb County. The idea for the Malta Community Endowment Fund came during the expansion of the Malta Public Library. At that time, the building campaign for the library was the talk of the town, bringing in a great deal of support from the people of Malta. Seeing the pride and dedication that arose from this project, local resident, Kevin McArtor, began to conceptualize a way for Malta citizens to invest in their community for years to come. After pitching the idea to his mom, Mary Lynn McArtor, the Malta Fund was on its way to fruition with a lead gift. Since inception, support for the Fund continues to grow through community awareness and discussion. “We are grateful to those who have given generously, understanding the vision and long-term impact of a fund like this. Like so many in Malta, this is our community and our family’s community, and we want to do all we can to create a better tomorrow.� Kevin McArtor, Donor


Donor Stories Providing Assistance to Community Needs In any community, positive change starts with an idea, followed by an action. From a desire to address the needs in their community, Rick and Anita Turner of Sycamore created the Turner Family Charitable Fund. This newly established donor advised fund allows the Turner family to provide support for needs that align with their charitable interests. Rick Turner was born in Sendai, Japan, where his dad was stationed with the Army for a period of time. During his childhood, the Turner family moved quite a bit, finally settling in Ottawa, IL, hometown to both his parents. Today, Rick is an attorney for Turner & Sackett Law Offices, with offices in Geneva and Sycamore. Rick is extremely active in the community and thoroughly enjoys coaching Sycamore High School Rugby. Anita Turner was born in Kansas where she spent her childhood growing up while her father obtained his degrees at Kansas State and Kansas University. During her middle school years, her father took a faculty position with the College of Education at Northern Illinois University (NIU) and moved the family to DeKalb. Anita has a passion for teaching and is currently a teacher at St. Mary’s in Sycamore. She served on the DeKalb County Board for 12 years, before stepping down in 2016. Outside of the classroom, Anita enjoys reading and working with kids. Rick and Anita Turner have been in the community for a number of years, raising all five of their children in Sycamore. Four of the five children are now married, extending the reach of their family from Illinois, to Nevada, to Florida. The Turners recently celebrated another life event as they welcomed the birth of their first granddaughter in 2017.

“We believe in the mission of the Community Foundation and the role it serves. We wish to do our part in enhancing the quality of life in DeKalb County and desire to help those in need; particularly children in need of assistance.” Rick Turner, Donor
