Welcome to East Peoria Community Foundation! We are a non-profit organization established in 2014 that is dedicated to improving East Peoria by developing general community-related projects, like Levee Park.

Levee Park is set in the heart of the Levee District, adjacent to City Hall and Fondulac District Library. The Foundation has embarked on a fundraising effort to transform the remainder of a 1½ acre site bounded by Richland and Washington Streets into a major focal point for East Peoria.

Significant donations from community supporters and state grants provided the necessary $2 million for the first two phases of the park, which funded a reading garden, community stage, public restrooms, electrical infrastructure, walking paths, landscaping, and more. Fundraising for the last phase of Levee Park is now underway, and it’s anticipated to cost an additional $1 million.  Among other amenities, plans include a splash pad for children and tiered seating for the stage. 

We hope you will contribute to this once-in-a-century opportunity as we seek to raise the last $500,000 on this $3 million Levee Park project.  Find out more about what we do and how you can donate to make Levee Park a reality.
