Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 5. The Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund.
    (a) The Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund is created as a special fund in the State treasury. From appropriations from the Fund, upon recommendation from the Charitable Trust Stabilization Committee, the State Treasurer may make grants to public and private entities in the State for the purposes set forth under subsection (b). Special attention shall be given to public and private entities with operating budgets of less than $1,000,000 that are located within a depressed area, as defined under Section 3 of the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act, and preferences for recommending grants to the State Treasurer may be given to these entities by the Committee. Moneys received for the purposes of this Section, including, without limitation, fees collected under subsection (m) of Section 115.10 of the General Not For Profit Corporation Act of 1986 and appropriations, gifts, grants, and awards from any public or private entity, must be deposited into the Fund. Any interest earnings that are attributable to moneys in the Fund must be deposited into the Fund.
    (b) Moneys in the Fund may be used only for the following purposes:
        (1) (blank);
        (2) (blank);
        (3) grants for the start-up or operational purposes
    
of participating organizations; and
        (4) the administration of the Fund and this Act.
    (c) Moneys in the Fund must be allocated as follows:
        (1) 20% of the amount deposited into the Fund in the
    
fiscal year must be set aside for the operating budget of the Fund for the next fiscal year, but the operating budget of the Fund may not exceed $4,000,000 in any fiscal year;
        (2) 50% must be available for the purposes set forth
    
under subsection (b); and
        (3) 30% must be invested for the purpose of earning
    
interest or other investment income.
    (d) As soon as practical after the effective date of this Act, the State Treasurer must transfer the amount of $1,000,000 from the General Revenue Fund to the Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund. On the June 30 that occurs in the third year after the transfer to the Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund, the Treasurer must transfer the amount of $1,000,000 from the Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund to the General Revenue Fund. If, on that date, less than $1,000,000 is available for transfer, then the Treasurer must transfer the remaining balance of the Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund to the General Revenue Fund, and on each June 30 thereafter must transfer any balance in the Charitable Trust Stabilization Fund to the General Revenue Fund until the aggregate amount of $1,000,000 has been transferred.
