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 Caesars Indiana (now Horseshoe Southern Indiana.) To date, Horseshoe Southern Indiana has contributed over $192,700,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.


How We Serve

  • Corydon Stellar Communities Program

Who We Serve

We serve residents of Harrison County in the following ways:

  • Awarding grants to help nonprofit organizations provide needed services in arts and culture, education, environment, health and human services, etc.
