We know that COVID-19 has affected many businesses and nonprofits in our area, and we want to do our part to make sure that your organization doesn’t suffer long-term consequences of this pandemic. That’s why we’ve created the Community Disaster Relief Fund.
The purpose of the Community Disaster Relief Fund is to provide rapid response assistance to local organizations that aid community members in the midst of local, national, or international crisis.
In 1993, a group of concerned volunteers gathered to establish a community foundation in Decatur County. They recognized that this new type of charitable organization would provide something Decatur County never had before: a charitable organization that allows donors to support any type of charity and more importantly, a foundation that is established to last forever. They worked diligently to establish the organization and gain those first gifts. Each gift was invested into a permanent fund. Those gifts have developed into the existing endowment. Providing over $1.5 million in grants and helping to bring $2 million to the community in Lilly Endowment Funds, the Foundation has become a constant source of financial support to local non-profits. The volunteers and staff have established a structured group of committees, which actively monitor investments, grants, scholarships, donor relations, and overall operation of the Decatur County Community Foundation.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
