The Harrison County Community Foundation was created in 1996 by the Harrison County Commissioners with an initial donation of $5,000,000 from Caesars Indiana (now Horseshoe Southern Indiana.) To date, Horseshoe Southern Indiana has contributed over $191,700,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.
