In 2005 we formed a brand new funding and grant organization called the Illinois Blues Coalition which is a not-for-profit organization" This organization 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.

The Illinois Blues Coalition, Inc. is an Illinois Not For Profit Corporation established under section 501 (c) (3) of the U.S. Tax Code.

The objective of the Coalition is to promote the art form of blues-related music by performance, by interpretation, by preservation and by enhancement of appreciation through knowledge and education. The Illinois Blues coalition will support Blues Societies, Blues Music Entertainers and Blues Music Education by offering grants and scholarships to help Blues Societies, Blues Music Entertainers and Blues Music Educators to help fund projects which preserve and promote the history and future of blues music.
