Back in May, the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation awarded over $80,000 to central Illinois non-profits to help bridge the gap in losses experienced during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


Encore Developmental Services was one of the recipients of those grants - much to the surprise of Executive Director Stephanie Coonce who indicates the IPCF received roughly half-a-million dollars in funding requests. 



Encore received $3,000 from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation.


Other grant recipients locally included the DeWitt County Friendship Center who received $2,300, DeWitt County DOVE received $5,000, Heritage Behavioral Health Center received $2,500, Big Brothers Big Sisters received $2,500, Community Action received $5,000, and the Salvation Army in Lincoln received $2,875.
