We love the theme of this annual report, Celebrating the Power to Do Good, because it really sums up the meaning of philanthropy: the power to do good. Here at the Porter County Community Foundation, our job is helping people and organizations to maximize this power. As a Foundation, we connect people to the causes they care about so we can all improve lives in Porter County.
Together, we strengthen the work of nonprofits through grants and other efforts that build the capacity to do even more good. Collectively, we build a stronger community for all by identifying issues, bringing together key stakeholders, and leveraging resources for greater impact. During this past year alone, the Foundation was able to give more than $1.9 million in grants to worthy Porter County organizations – all because people like you have chosen to maximize your power to do good through the Foundation. We thank you for choosing the Foundation as your place to support Porter County.
