Grand Victoria Foundation We believe in the promise that Illinois communities can be great places to live and work. We invest our resources to build strong communities by strengthening education, protecting the natural environment, and promoting economic vitality. Because progress in those areas is often hindered by inefficient and fragmented systems, we support work that builds networks, brings in new partners, improves coordination, adapts to changing circumstances, and builds toward solutions at scales. As a foundation we seek to be inclusive, collaborative, and flexible. We believe that the best work is based on strong relationships and honest sharing of ideas. We try to learn from our work and our partners, and respond creatively to new opportunities and challenges as they arise. We value integrity, excellence, and transparency. We support work that we believe embodies these values as well. Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin, Illinois voluntarily donates 20 percent of its annual net operating income to fund initiatives that help turn local communities into vibrant civic hubs. That extraordinary commitment sets it apart from other gaming establishments around the country. Grand Victoria Foundation was established in 1996 to carry out this commitment.
