Plan for year-end giving

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 $194,000,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.
