Local Organizations Provide Financial Support to the BHHA...

The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is pleased to announce that it has received two grants from local organizations. From Community State Bank, the BHHA received a gift of $1,000. Funding for this gift came from CSB’s partner, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago. This grant will be used to assist with the Heritage’s general operating expenses during the pandemic.

Through their GCF Community Impact Fund, the GalesburgGCF Community Foundation has given $2,500 to the BHHA for a 2021 Program Series at the Dairy Building. Next year is the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Bishop Hill Colony. As part of this anniversary, the Heritage is hosting a series of lectures, workshops, and concerts celebrating the heritage of Bishop Hill. Funding from the Galesburg Community Foundation will partially support these programs.

The BHHA is dedicated to preserving the history of the Bishop Hill Colony and passing it on to future generations. Like many other nonprofit historical organizations, funding has drastically decreased due to lower visitor revenues. These grants will assist us to continue our activities. The Bishop Hill Heritage Association thanks Community State Bank and the Galesburg Community Foundation for their financial support.
