Lilly Foundation Grows Community Foundation Network

The Porter County Community Foundation, established in 1996, was created after a Lilly Endowment grant provided an incentive for communities to start their own foundations.
 
“The folks at Lilly thought that, rather than sitting in Indianapolis and trying to evaluate requests for support from all over the state, it would be a better use of their resources to get communities set up with their own foundations, focused on endowment building that would be uniquely positioned to respond to local needs and opportunities,” Bill Higbie, president and CEO of the Porter County Community Foundation says.
 
Today, the Porter County Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization, manages $50 million in philanthropic capital for the good of Porter County, dispersing about $2 million annually in grants and scholarships.
