It takes all of us to lift a community.

Help us make an impact for future generations.

When our Community Needs Assessment was published last year, we learned a great deal about our community.

  • We know now that over 26,000 in Clark and Floyd Counties are food insecure, and 9,000 of those are children.
  • We know that over 12% of our citizens live below the poverty line.
  • We know that we have to address the education and workforce development needs of our community and make this a healthy place to live, improving the quality of life in all areas.
  • And we know that by working together, we can impact the future of our community.

How can you help? Make a contribution to the Foundation’s Community Impact Fund or establish your own fund. We’ll use your generosity to build a stronger community and make an impact in the areas that we know have the greatest needs. Your tax deductible contribution will assure that these community needs are being met now and in the future. If you’re interested in establishing your own fund to support the causes that you care most about, please contact Kenton at kwooden@cfsouthernindiana.com or (812) 948-4662.

Investing In a Stronger Floyd County

Answering Your Questions about the Floyd County Fund

We know there are a number of questions about how CFSI is helping Floyd County use the proceeds from the Floyd Memorial Hospital sale to provide a predictable source of revenue for the County now and for future generations.

To help educate everyone about how Floyd County’s residents will benefit from this partnership, we’ve put together this web page.

If you have additional questions, please call us at (812) 948-4662.


Creating an Impact Through Our Grants

Giving Thanks to Those Who Give Back

There is no better time than now to show our appreciation for all the local groups who are helping to feed our hungry.

Every day, men, women, children, and elderly in our community go hungry. Fortunately, there are organizations and volunteers dedicated to offering a helping hand.

Thanks to grants and donations, St. Mark’s United Church of Christ Soup Kitchen provides free meals to our community’s hungry every Saturday of the year. Operating 52 weeks a year, regardless of holidays or weather, 100-150 individuals receive a free, hot and nutritious meal thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers and community organizations who have come together to ensure people’s nutritional needs throughout New Albany are met.
