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 that State of Illinois.

The foundation supports small business start-ups and financing through lending partnerships with Marquette Bank, and US Bank. Our current supporters are Bank of America, Citibank, Marquette Bank, PNC Bank, US Bank, Field Foundation of Illinois, and Woods Fund of Chicago.

We also provide small business development seminars through the small business development “Boot Camp” Program, funded by a grant from Citibank.
