“A Power for Good”
We’re on a mission to preserve La Porte County by endowing it for the future. Thanks to your help, we’ve awarded nearly $14 million to over 200 local organizations.
We have helped thousands of people through:
- filling empty stomachs;
- keeping families in safe, warm homes or sheltering them when they are not;
- preventing abuse & neglect, & responding when it occurs;
- checking eyesight so children can see & learn;
- reducing thousands of college tuition bills;
- bringing learning to life in our classrooms;
- inspiring & informing community leaders—adults & youth;
- giving cancer patients hope;
- connecting people with nature & animals; &
- touching souls through arts & culture.
Here are three things that make us different:
Knowledge of the Community
Because the Foundation is focused on the totality of our community’s needs, we can weave together broad-scale solutions from all our funds and test new approaches. The reason we can attack an issue from so many angles is because of the variety of funds we hold that are all rounded out by unrestricted dollars.
Flexibility & Longevity
Our team of professionals can help you achieve anything you wish, anywhere in the world with your philanthropy. As a public entity led by the leaders of our community, your philanthropic intent will be protected forever.
Investment & Tax Benefits
Community foundations are skilled in investing assets, as well as seeking grant opportunities that mesh with donors’ interests. And, partnering with us allows you the greatest tax benefits provided, significantly higher than charitable gifts to a private foundation.
