Community Foundation Meets $2 Million Match

Categories: Foundation Advisor eNews |

Thank You  For Helping Us Reach Our
$2 Million Matching Goal


To our current and past board, volunteers, staff, professional advisors, fundholders, donors and our entire community, thank you for helping us reach our $2 million matching grant goal from Lilly Endowment, Inc.! We couldn’t have done this without you. 

Due to your support we were able to raise over $2.9 million, which will help us create lasting impact on our region’s needs as identified through our recently released Community Needs Assessment.

With your support, this successful matching campaign will generate an additional $188,000 per year to support the charitable causes that are important to our community and fundholders.

Thank you for your continued support and allowing us to be your trusted partner, resource and steward in philanthropy.
