Illinois Blues & Heritage Music Festival supports The Illinois Blues Coalition Fund

The objective of the Coalition is to promote the art of blues-related music by performance, by interpretation, by preservation and by enhancement of appreciation through knowledge and education. The Illinois Blues coalition supports blues societies, blues music entertainers and blues music education by offering grants and scholarships to help fund projects which preserve and promote the history and future of blues music.

The Illinois Blues Coalition is a not-for-profit organization and does not compete with Blues Societies as it does NOT put on events of any kind. What it does is provide grant money to Blues Societies and others who may request funding.
