Flags of Freedom

In Princeton, the “Flags of Freedom” stand in tribute to the men and women who serve or have served our country. They are a reminder of the sacrifices made to keep our Nation free. The Community Foundation serves as the Fiscal Sponsor for Flags of Freedom, and is accepting donations to assist with the purchase of new flags and to support project activities. This honorable program is deserving of your gift and we invite you to learn more at www.flagsoffreedomi80.org.

Congratulations to Flags of Freedom! The fundraising event “Rockin’ The Runway” held in Princeton on March 29 was a terrific success! We are very proud to partner with Flags of Freedom and be able to help support such a wonderful cause. Of course, more donations are always welcome, so if you wish to donate, go ahead and click the donate button at the top of this page! 

One of the highlights of the evening was the presentation of Quilts of Valor to several Veterans from Starved Rock Country.  Terry Johnson, Director of the Illinois Valley Quilts of Valor organization led the emotional presentations.  Congratulations to all the recipients, and especially to Keith Cain and Chuck Beckett, both Vietnam Vets, who serve on the Community Foundation Board of Directors.

It enables us to operate, provides funds for immediate distribution to area agencies and charitable initiatives and helps us build the core administrative fund. The Leadership Fund for Now is made up of unrestricted donations, earnings on investments, and administrative fees. This is where we need your donation the most.
