WHO WE ARE

Our mission is to provide responsible stewardship of gifts donated for broad charitable purposes; promote leadership to address community issues; serve as a catalyst for positive change in partnership with others; and promote philanthropy broadly within the community.

 

HISTORY

Columbus and Bartholomew County have a proud heritage of philanthropy. Recognizing that this spirit of generosity should be nurtured and sustained, the idea of a community foundation was born as early as 1968. The concept was seen as a means to encourage all people to support this community that means so much to us. Thanks to the vision and efforts of a wide array of people, the dream of a community foundation for Bartholomew County became a reality in 1976. This new organization to support philanthropy and to welcome all gifts – both large and small – would assure continuation of our proud heritage of generous community giving.

FUNDS

Heritage Fund Community Foundation of Bartholomew County was founded in 1976. The Foundation manages nearly $90 million in charitable assets and administers over 400 endowed and scholarship funds, supporting the unique charitable intent of the donor who established the fund.
