New Donor Advised Fund Established

A donor wishing to remain anonymous recently established a donor advised fund at SCCF with a $20,000 contribution. This fund will support a variety of causes in Steuben County as advised by the donor and approved by the board of directors. The first grant from this fund was awarded to Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Indiana. They will be receiving $15,000 to help toward the purchase of a used van to transport materials to building sites. The donor is happy to support many needs in the community through the community foundation and SCCF is happy to help!
FIST Starts Year with New Leadership

While most students enjoy their last days of summer relaxing and spending time with friends, Karlie Hutchins recently chose to spend a few of those precious afternoons at the SCCF office working on plans to make a difference in the community. Karlie is currently the President of FIST – Forever Improving Steuben County—which is the Steuben County Community Foundation’s youth philanthropy organization. Created in 1996 by the Dekko Foundation, FIST is comprised of students from county schools who volunteer and give back to the community, growing into leaders and making a positive impact on Steuben County.  Click here to read more.
