The Illinois Disciples Foundation was an administrative unit of the Illinois Disciples of Christ. Its primary function was overseeing the finances of the Disciples in Illinois, including funds for various educational, missionary, benevolent, and administrative activities.
This collection mainly contains correspondence of Frank J. Parr and Charles M. Thompson, treasurers of the foundation, dealing mostly with fundraising issues. The collection also includes papers relating to the Illinois Centennial Campaign of the Illinois Disciples of Christ, bank books, receipt books, cancelled checks, and bank deposit slips.
This collection was transferred to the Illinois Historical Survey from the University Archives in 1976.
