The Putnam County Community Foundation is committed to providing endowment building initiatives for its component funds. Reaching endowment status allows a fund to make a lasting impact in Putnam County for generations to come.
This October, the Community Foundation will commemorate its anniversary with a $35,000 grant for the Share the Dream endowment building program. We hope this program encourages funds working toward endowment status to actively fundraise between October 10-17 to earn a portion of the grant.
During that time, funds which raise a minimum of $250 will receive a proportional match and will have the opportunity to earn additional funding for raising the most dollars and engaging the most individual donors.
