What is A
Community Fund?

The Community Fund is a permanent charitable resource designed to support local causes and organizations. Through individual donations – large and small – a local advisory board is able to make grants to meet the needs and vision of the community. We partner with individuals, businesses and nonprofits to make Harrison County a better place to live, learn, work and play.

Spotlight: Doing Good
In Harrison County

over $15,000 in grants made in the past three years:
The Harrison County Community Fund was established by local citizens to create a more generous, vibrant and engaged Harrison County. And because our fund is permanently endowed, it provides support for civic projects and charitable endeavors for generations to come. In the past three years, over $15,000 in grants have been made to fund great projects like:

  • Supporting KidTown Playground improvements
  • Installing lighting for the Flat Run Verterans Park walking path
  • Creation of the Walkind Dead Mural
  • Addition of a sway swing in Flat Runs Veterans Park
  • Supporting Helping Gounds Find a Home with new travel crates and improvements to their website
  • Improvements to the entrance of the Renaker Alley parking lot


Harrison County deserves a healthy Community Foundation. We are on the verge of accomplishing something that will be of continuing benefit to our community.
