Exceeding the Challenge in Harrison County

July 10, 2024Community Funds

The Harrison County Community Fund (HCCF) kicked off the early months of 2024 with a full schedule of fundraising and community engagement!

 

In January, the HCCF board of directors were challenged to raise $25,000 in six months.

Powered by their dedication and passion for Harrison County, they rallied together to raise an astounding $37,100 in just one week!

 

Although they already rose to the challenge, the fundraising didn’t stop there. In February, HCCF hosted an event at Pike Street Wine House to engage the community and help folks get better acquainted with HCCF, while raising funds for a special match challenge issued by the James and Martha Brown Foundation.

 

With the help of committed donors, community members and the James and Martha Brown Foundation match, HCCF raised a total of $31,568, bringing the total funds raised in January and February to $93,668! Thanks to the matching campaign, more dollars will be invested back into Harrison County for the benefit of the entire community.

 

Fueled by the excitement of exceeding their fundraising goal, HCCF partnered with the Cynthiana Chamber of Commerce to sponsor the Breakout Leadership Conference. The conference was designed to support and inspire leadership throughout Cynthiana and gave attendees the opportunity to learn from top leaders, network with peers, and discover innovative strategies to lead with impact.

 

As the title sponsor of the conference, the HCCF hosted a breakout session focused on the significance of giving back to Harrison County and the importance of providing sustained, annual support for the community’s well-being.

 

The Harrison County Community Fund is certainly making waves in their community and looks forward to making an even bigger splash in the last half of 2024, and beyond!
