Since its inception in 1996, the Foundation has grown steadily. Today the Foundation holds over $55 million in assets. The Foundation awards grants and scholarships of nearly $2 million annually. The impact and investment in our community has been made possible by the generosity of over 7,000 donors with gifts ranging from a couple of dollars to $3 million. Every gift makes a difference, no matter the size. This generosity enables the Foundation to respond to the need and opportunities throughout Porter County.
