Our Alliance Affiliation
We are part of the Community Foundation Alliance, a network of nine community foundations serving counties in southwestern Indiana. The Alliance provides management and administrative expertise to county-wide community foundations, empowering each to promote philanthropy, build endowment and improve wellbeing in our local communities.
Alliance activities are guided by a board of trustees made up of community leaders representing each foundation. All are civic-minded volunteers who live or work in the counties they serve.
