The Spoon River College Foundation, which was established in 1979 to support the College’s Mission and its students, expends roughly a quarter of a million dollars annually on programs, facilities, and scholarships. To help fund these endeavors, the Foundation hosts a number of annual fundraising campaigns and events throughout the year.

In addition to the events listed below, the Spoon River College Community Chorus produces a number of performances each year, and ticket sales help to fund scholarships.  Please check the SRC Community Chorus​ page for more information!

 The SRC Speakeasy in Havana


The SRC Speakeasy held on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at Grandpa’s in Havana was a huge success!

Guests at the SRC Foundation FUNdraiser enjoyed live music, entertainment, and hors d'oeuvres!  The Hardworking Committee members did a great job creating a timeline of Havana’s rich history, including gambling, cigars and Havana's connections with the notorious Al Capone.

Close to $4,500 was raised with this event through ticket sales, sponsorships and our Silent Auction.

A big thanks to our many generous supporters!
