The Monroe Foundation is a publicly supported not-for-profit community and enterprise development intermediary. We seek to educate, link, and fund community development projects within low-income communities in the State of Illinois.

The foundation supports small business start-ups and financing through lending partnerships. Our current supporters are PNC Bank and Marquette Bank.

We also provide small business development seminars through the small business development “Boot Camp” Program, funded by grants.
