The Friends of the Coronado (FOC) advocates for cultural programming, student performances and community events at Rockford’s “Crown Jewel.” In addition, FOC, in partnership with the City of Rockford, addresses the integrity and preservation of historical elements throughout the theater.

Activities undertaken by the FOC in fulfilling its mission are made possible through the generous annual charitable donations of individuals, foundations, organizations and corporations, and through the dedication of volunteers.
