About the Porter County Community Foundation

The Foundation amplifies the power to do good by connecting you to the causes you care about. Together, we are the nonprofit that serves other nonprofits – creating grants and programs for good, and endowments forever.

We offer many options for giving and getting involved – options designed to help each person or organization help in their own way.  Some people want to write an annual check while others wish to create an estate plan. We can help with both.

Some wish to be involved in volunteering while others wish to remain anonymous. Some have a lot to give and some have a little. We’re here to help you find the best ways to make a positive impact in your community. Find out how your Foundation can help you be a philanthropist in your own way.

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 who are making innovative investments, large and small, in their community.
