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 $194,700,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.
The Community Foundation values its role as a catalyst, convener and collaborator, bringing other funders and nonprofits together around vital issues and adding key support to make positive change possible. We center our work around what we know about community needs. Our initiatives include:

You can give in any amount to
any existing fund.
