The Effingham County Fair is securing its future for years to come by establishing an endowment fund with the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation. All money in the endowment will go to support the fair in the future and will reduce the necessity of annual funding.
The fair has been in operation since 1944 and is organized each year by the Effingham County Fair Association. Donors who contribute $100 or more in 2017 will be named Charter Members of the new Effingham County Fair Association Endowment. The Charter Membership is meant to permanently recognize those who support the Effingham County Fair and members will be listed on a plaque in the fair office.
