Bringing Caring People And Charitable Endeavors Together
The Clearly Kosciusko member we’re shining the spotlight on this month is the Kosciusko County Community Foundation. Their goal is to connect potential donors with charitable opportunities that positively impact our community.
The Community Foundation accomplishes this by:
- Serving as the vehicle for donors’ charitable dreams
- Awarding grant funding to charitable organizations and projects
- Acting as a catalyst for addressing community needs.
The Community Foundation has been a part of Kosciusko County since 1968 when it began as the “Greater Warsaw Community Foundation”. Board members bring a variety of valuable expertise to the organization, including administration, investment, marketing, education, nonprofit governance, business planning and more.
Each year, the Community Foundation publishes two newsletters, as well as an annual report and an e-newsletter that is released 4-6 times. You can sign up for their newsletter here.
The Community Foundation provides a variety of services that range from donor advisory services to scholarship and grant funding.
The Foundation provides more than 100 different scholarship funds for local students and awards over $500,000 to Kosciusko County students each year. Scholarships are used by high school students to help cover the cost of higher education programs.
The Foundation also believes in helping nonprofits succeed. That’s why they provide resources and guidance for nonprofits to secure funding both through grants and endowment funding.
Professional Advisor Services
Providing local businesses and organizations with expert financial and legal advice for their clients is one of the organization’s central commitments. From continuing education workshops, online tools and sample fund agreements, KCCF can help you find the resources you need to help your clients make sense of charitable giving.
The donor resources they provide include 24/7 online access to funding information, tools that help any donor research existing nonprofits and philanthropy opportunities, as well as the free Donor Learning Portal.
The Foundation recently joined Clearly Kosciusko as a member because their goals closely align with ours. Both organizations are focused on how to support the Kosciusko County community to help it grow and thrive.
