HCCF committed to help
The Harrison County Community Foundation is committed to providing support to non-profit organizations that are serving the community during this time of crisis. The HCCF is reaching out to local organizations and other community leaders to learn about emergency needs and how it can help.
The Foundation issued the following statement:
“The uncertainty is difficult. None of us have experienced this before. Time lines and priorities are ever shifting and that makes it difficult to plan. As a result, we know we must be flexible. We have streamlined our grant-making process for emergencies related to the current crisis.
“We’re in this together. We live and work here, too. The health and safety of our friends and families and Harrison County residents, the stability of our non-profit organizations and the economic well-being of our community are important to us. We are committing resources to meet the short-term and long-term needs.
“We have created a COVID-19 Relief Fund to help nonprofits in our community. You can help.”
The HCCF COVID-19 Relief Fund will provide resources to non-profit organizations serving Harrison County residents as they address immediate and long-term needs. The Foundation will serve as a partner in the effort.
To join the HCCF in helping meet the need, you are invited to make a gift to the HCCF COVID-19 Relief Fund. This can be done online at hccfindiana.org or by mailing a check to HCCF, P.O. Box 279, Corydon, IN 47112. Make checks payable to HCCF with “COVID-19 Relief Fund” noted.
The Foundation cannot provide direct assistance to individuals. Instead, it supports the non-profit organizations serving individuals. Each dollar received will be used to provide assistance. This is for immediate use rather than a permanent endowment.
The Foundation is committing money to this fund as well.
If you represent a nonprofit and want to find out more about emergency resources, reach out to the HCCF via email. For questions about how to access your endowment fund, contact Derrick Grigsby. For questions about emergency grants for nonprofits, contact Anna Curts.
