Welcome Home

We believe Delaware County is a great place to live. We also believe that we can make it even better. So we work every day to improve our community. Sometimes that means sponsoring educational programs, other times it means granting funds for important community projects. On this site, you can learn about the full spectrum of work we do − and how to become a part of it.

IT'S THAT TIME... It's time to make your holiday gift list

...and The Community Foundation would like to help!

A holiday gift card from the Foundation is a convenient and timely option to meet charitable goals and share a holiday greeting.  For every $10 contribution we receive by December 17, 2014, the Foundation will send an inscribed holiday greeting in your name to those you wish to acknowledge this holiday season.

It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3

1 - Make your list and check it twice.  Make sure you provide each recipient's name and current address.
2 - Write your check payable to The Community Foundation and count the number of names on your list        and multiply by 10 for the contribution amount.
3 - Mail your list and check to the Foundation at P.O. Box 807, Muncie, IN  47308
