Where does ILTF get its funding?

As a community foundation, ILTF serves both as a grantmaking organization and as a vehicle through which other organizations and individuals can support our mission. In 2001, ILTF received a $20 million endowment from the Northwest Area Foundation to begin operation. Since then, ILTF has received contributions from a variety of sources, including foundations, Indian nations, businesses and individuals. Because the income we earn through investments and grants covers our general operating expenses, ILTF distributes 100 percent of donor contributions to support program initiatives and grantmaking efforts.
