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.


@PCgivingproject Overview

Our Mission

Inspiring young philanthropists through the power of collective giving to invest in the future of Porter County.

Who We Are

We are a group of young leaders and families, Porter County residents in our 20s, 30s and 40s, who realize we all have the power to do good and a role to play in making a difference in our community. We are stepping up to create a fund that will benefit our community for generations to come.

Our goal is to give away half of the money we raise annually in grants for charitable initiatives that support innovative education and youth development programs that serve children and youth, birth through age 18, and endow the other half in a permanent fund with the Porter County Community Foundation for future grants.

Working together, we also provide personal and professional networking opportunities for individuals and families.
