Robert M. Eschbach Legacy Fund

Robert M. Eschbach Legacy Fund

In recognition of the vision, dedication and accomplishments of Robert M. Eschbach, the former Mayor of Ottawa, this endowment fund was established to continue the aesthetic, cultural and economic development of Ottawa. 

Initially, the fund was first established with a $60,000 gift from Bob’s sister, Sharon Eschbach Coleman and her late husband, Ken Coleman, of Seattle, WA. We would also like to take this opportunity to express gratitude to Bob on behalf of the entire Ottawa community for his generous contributions to further the arts in Starved Rock Country. 

Financial donations may also be mailed or made in person at our office 241 Marquette St, LaSalle, IL 61301. If you prefer to make a financial contribution by mail, please make your check payable to SRCCF. For more information about the Robert M. Eschbach Legacy Fund, please contact (815)252-2906.

Committed to you and your future.

Community foundations exist to meet the philanthropic needs of the community and the philanthropic desires of local donors. When we connect those two, wonderful things happen to enhance the quality of life for all of us.​
