Run Today for Tomorrow 5K

The goal of Run Today for Tomorrow is to bring hope and provide help to those affected by suicide. All proceeds go to local mental health resources and a mental health scholarship for local students.

.Our Mission.

Starved Rock Country Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving and maintaining the quality of life for residents in and around LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam County. Through the generosity of our donors, and our mission to connect people who care to causes that matter, SRCCF has received more than $5.1 million in total contributions and distributed $1.8 million and counting to the members and organizations in our communities.


Reimagine Mendota

There’s something special about every town: places, traditions, and attitudes. These all draw people to a place that they care about and live. Like many small towns, businesses have relocated, and numerous downtown stores remain empty. Dollars received will support community conversations and efforts to revitalize downtown, parks, and other activities identified.
