July 2019
Greetings!          
Welcome, New Board Members!

SCCF is excited to announce the addition of two board members in July 2019.

Kayla Warren has been employed as Controller at Trine University for three and a half years. She moved to Steuben County for college, and has now made it her home with her husband, Noah, and their two children. In addition to learning about additional opportunities for families to get involved in Steuben County, Kayla looks forward to getting to know leaders in the community and learning from their expertise and experiences.

Craig Burkholder is new to the SCCF board, but has been a longtime volunteer on the SCCF grants committee and the Ashley-Hudson Community Fund committee. Craig has served as the pastor at Hudson United Brethren Church since 1989, and he was motivated to get involved by his Christian faith background. He looks forward to working to help nonprofits address root causes of big challenges.

Save the Date!
Steuben County Community Foundation will host its annual public meeting on August 27 at Club Z in Trine University's MTI Center. Throughout the year, we often refer to our community as a big jigsaw puzzle. Each piece, like each nonprofit and individual in our community, has a different shape and design. However, we all fit together to form the canvas of Steuben County. Many Steuben County nonprofits benefit from designated funds held at SCCF, which receive automatic grants on an annual basis as directed by the donors who have established these funds. Each year, SCCF distributes more than $300,000 in annual designated grants! We're excited to celebrate the many puzzle pieces of our community at this annual meeting, where we will honor the nonprofits that address a wide variety of local needs. After all, our mission is to connect people who care with the needs that matter in our community.
 
If your organization benefits from a designated fund, mark this date in your calendar as it will be the first opportunity you have to collect your annual grant.
Angola Balloons Aloft
Hot air balloons will take flight at Angola High School on July 12 and 13, 2019 as part of Angola Balloons Aloft (ABA). This event is organized by a volunteer committee who works year-round to find sponsors, balloon pilots, and fun activities for this free, family-friendly event. Tim Crooks, co-director of ABA, shared, "We have a very generous community, and there are a lot of caring people. We couldn't do this event without them." This year marks the 10th anniversary of ABA.

SCCF is the fiscal sponsor of ABA. For more information visit angolaballoonsaloft.com.
FIST Newsletter
In case you missed it, SCCF launched an
e-newsletter that's all about its youth philanthropy group, FIST - Forever Improving Steuben County Together. This summer, we shared a recap of the group's 2018-2019 school year and announced our FIST alumni survey to learn about their time in the organization. Not surprisingly, many have become teachers, nurses, and some have continued to work in the nonprofit sector. If you know of any current or former FIST members who would be interested in staying up to date, please share the link to our most recent newsletter below.
