About the Community Foundation

The Wabash Valley Community Foundation is your community portal. By channeling community expertise to you and taking your creative ideas to the community, together, we make a difference. We go beyond simply taking charitable contributions and making grants to charitable organizations. Our board and staff are responsible for having in-depth expertise and spend most of their time in the community understanding challenges, identifying opportunities and recognizing successful organizations.

Families, individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations have created more than 670 charitable funds at the Community Foundation in the past 27 years. Together, we have awarded over $24 million in grants and scholarships. Grants from the Community Foundation support every imaginable area of our communities from community centers and local arts organizations to tree-planting projects and literacy programs in schools. The Community Foundation also has special community funds that support Arts & Culture, Community Development, Education, Health & Human Services and Religion.

Since 1991, the Wabash Valley Community Foundation has been providing grants to nonprofit organizations in Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties. Our staff members, along with board members and volunteers, work together to ensure donors achieve their charitable goals by matching their charitable interests with programs and opportunities within our communities.
