This year, we invite you to celebrate our 37th birthday by making a gift to the Community Grants Endowment or any other unrestricted fund which provides general benefit to our communities. Donations made on October 17 will be boosted by a $10,000 contribution from the Community Foundation. This contribution will be proportionally distributed among eligible funds which receive a donation of any amount during the Giving Challenge.

Just this year, the Community Foundation has awarded nearly $175,000 from the Community Grants Endowment and the additional 44 named funds that contribute to it. Several community organizations and partners have received grant funding from the Community Grants Endowment to increase their impact and better serve communities across Putnam County. The most recent grant recipients will be announced later this month.

For additional information about the Giving Challenge or other opportunities at the Putnam County Community Foundation, please contact us at 765.653.4978.
