Funding New Beginnings Seeks Applications


Submitted by Megan Thompson, FNB

Funding New Beginnings Community Foundation was established in 2004 with a mission that still holds true today to enhance the quality of life for all residents, build permanent endowment funds, address needs through grant making, and provide community philanthropic leadership to the Prophetstown Lyndon Tampico School District area.

Recently, Funding New Beginnings has seen significant growth due to the generosity of local donors. This allows the Foundation to increase its financial support to the local area. Any nonprofit organization with 501(c) (3) status under the IRS Tax Code, government organization or education institution can apply by completing the grant application form. Applicants must have a local office, a local corporate Board of Directors, incorporated in the State of Illinois or chartered by the U.S. Government and serve residents located in the Prophetstown-Lyndon- Tampico School District.

The current Foundation Board of Directors are Garett Plumley (President), Megan Thompson (Vice President), Connie Johnson (Secretary), Judith Bryan, Janet Goodell, and Michele Williams with Nick Emmerson serving as Executive Director.  Applications are accepted throughout the year and reviewed by the Board at their regularly scheduled meetings.  Click HERE for an application or go to www.FarmersNationalBank.bank and search under Customer Resources/Community Foundation. 

To be included in our next application review, please submit applications prior to November 6, 2020.

To request further information or confirm if your organization qualifies for funding please contact Nick Emmerson at (309) 944-0582 or e-mail Nick at nicke@farmersnationalbank.bank
