Community Foundation announces Endowment Builder Grantees

The Putnam County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that four partner organizations have been awarded Endowment Builder grants. Greencastle Civic League, Heritage Preservation Society, Beyond Homeless, and AgrIInstitute will participate in this program over the next year.

Endowment Builder grants are matching grants to help grow an organization’s existing or newly established endowment at the Community Foundation. Matching funds will be going to support the following endowments: Greencastle Civic League Splash Park Fund, Heritage Preservation Society Projects Endowment, Beyond Homeless, Inc. Endowment, and AgrIInstitute Inc. Endowment.

“Establishing and growing an endowment builds financial stability and helps a charity to attract larger gifts, including estate gifts,” said Elaine Peck, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “Plus, this is a perfect way for donors to maximize their contributions because each gift is matched and makes a lasting impact.”

Grants to the community are made possible through contributions, both in cash and planned estate gifts, from visionary donors who want to make a difference in Putnam County. For questions about the grants program and process or how to start an endowment, please contact Dean Gambill, Director of Community Development, at 765-653-4978.

The Putnam County Community Foundation is a nonprofit public charity established in 1985 to serve donors, award grants, and provide leadership, enriching the quality of life and strengthening community in Putnam County forever. To double the impact of your charitable giving here at home, contact Elaine Peck, Executive Director, 765.653.4978 or epeck@pcfoundation.org.
