Tuesday, November 27th is Giving Tuesday. It is known as the National Day of Giving, following Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday.
The Henry County Community Foundation provides a vehicle for all citizens to contribute to the betterment of their community. Gifts of all sizes are encouraged, appreciated and important.
A person can either contribute to an existing fund or create a new fund. A donor has the opportunity to create a named fund with a gift of $10,000 or more.
Grants from funds can be donor directed, or a specified group is identified for selecting grant recipients. Specialty funds can be set up or donors can leave money to the unrestricted fund of the HCCF and allow the current Foundation Trustees to use the yearly income to meet the current needs of Henry County. The Henry County Community Foundation depends on personal interests of donors. Donors can put their money to work in a variety of fund types within the HCCF. People give through the Henry County Community Foundation not to the Henry County Community Foundation. What is important to the donor is important to the foundation. The foundation will work with donors to provide for their interest, scholarship or organization.
Donors can call the Henry County Community Foundation Executive Director, Dusty Sonnenberg, at 419-966-7181.
