Welcome to the
Harrison County Community Foundation

The Harrison County Community Foundation was created in 1996 by the Harrison County Commissioners with an initial donation of $5,000,000 from what is now Caesars Southern Indiana. To date, Caesars Southern Indiana has contributed over $196,200,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.

The Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is supporting nonprofit organizations that are serving our community during this time of crisis. We have streamlined our emergency granting process and we’re working closely with community leaders, local officials, and nonprofits to identify the most critical needs. We are in this fight for the long haul, committing resources to meet our community’s immediate and long-term needs.

Here’s what we have available to date:

HCCF is covering childcare costs for healthcare, emergency and essential workers at Blue River Services Rainbow’s End, Boys and Girls Club of Harrison County and the YMCA of Harrison County. For more information, click here.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the HCCF parking lot. No password neededFor a list of other locations, click here.

HCCF is still awarding graduating high school and adult scholarships this spring. We are announcing graduating high school student awards one school at a time. Here are the scholarship awards for North Harrison High School, Lanesville High School and South Central Jr./Sr. High School. Keep checking this website and Facebook for more updates.

Emergency grant assistance is available to nonprofits with COVID-19 related emergencies. To start the process a one to two page letter explaining their emergency must be sent to Anna Curts, Grants Manager at annac@hccfindiana.org.

Community Resources Lists are compiled weekly and made available to key nonprofits, local officials and community leaders throughout the county.  For more information and to see the resources, click here.

HCCF continues emergency response. HCCF has awarded two emergency grants to nonprofits to date. Learn more. Also, the HCCF Board of Directors voted to contribute $100,000 to the Harrison County Small Business Economic Relief Program. Learn more. 

An Economic Relief Initiative Grant is available for Southern Indiana nonprofits through Metro United Way. The COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant will provide immediate financial aid and long-term recovery to organizations and programs on the front lines of COVID-19.
