We invest in youth through scholarships and special initiatives.

The Putnam County Community Foundation is excited to announce an incredible matching opportunity for donors made possible by a $750,000 grant from Lilly Endowment’s GIFT VIII program (Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow). The GIFT VIII matching grant funds allow Indiana community foundations to:

  • Grow their financial resources to promote long-term viability and sustainability;
  • Further strengthen their leadership capabilities; and
  • Develop and implement strategic programs, projects, and initiatives that enhance their communities’ quality of life.

While resources remain available, gifts made to a new or existing Community Impact (unrestricted) fund which provides PCCF’s grantmaking dollars will be matched $2 for every $1 given before December 31, 2025.
