Porter County Community Foundation

At the Porter County Community Foundation

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


Giving Circles

At the Foundation, you have many options for how to make your difference. Consider the following:

Women Helping Women through Impact Porter County

Impact Porter County is an active giving circle of women helping women through the Porter County Community Foundation. This dynamic group makes a lasting impact by choosing a single recipient each year to receive a significant grant to improve the quality of life for women and children in Porter County. Members of Impact Porter County contribute $1,000 or more to the Women’s Fund and each member receives a vote in choosing the annual recipient. Let us know if you are interested in joining Impact Porter County.

@PCgivingproject – Uniting Young Philanthropists

This group of young leaders from 20-somethings to 40-somethings is stepping up to make a difference for generations to come. These young philanthropists raise funds through lively events, giving half of the funds raised in annual grants and endowing the other half for future plans. The group enjoys the networking opportunities as well as the power to do good. Let us know if you are interested in joining @PCgivingproject.

Circle of Promise

The Circle of Promise recognizes the wonderful individuals, families and businesses who choose to support the Foundation with an annual gift of $1,000 or more.

The Echo Society

The Echo Society honors the extraordinary generosity of those who make an endowed lifetime gift or leave all or a portion of their assets to the Foundation through a will or estate plan. These funds are endowed and only the earnings are used, so the funds continue working for the community forever.
