At the Porter County Community Foundation

we put the power to do good in your hands. Together we build a stronger Porter County.


Who We Are

The Foundation has helped 6,000 donors connect to local causes, including establishing more than 350 funds, which provide lasting support for charitable organizations throughout the community.

Since its inception in 1996, the Porter County Community Foundation has awarded more than $19 million in grants and scholarships.

Today, the Foundation holds over $44 million in assets and annually distributes $2 million in grants. None of this would be possible without the generosity of donors, large and small, who are making innovative investments in their community.


We inspire giving and engage our community to improve lives in Porter County now and forever.


We envision Porter County as a community where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.


The Porter County Community Foundation values:

  • the spirit of kindness and generosity;
  • inclusiveness and unity for the advancement of Porter County; and
  • integrity and accountability in fund raising and grant making.
