Fund Purpose Supports qualified nonprofit organizations with a focus on those located in Harrison County, Indiana and Meade County, Kentucky.
Fund Story Jennifer Hager loved Meade County, Kentucky more than anything (with the exception of her UK Wildcats). She was very grateful for the opportunity to work for the Meade County Board of Education as a teacher.
Her goal was for her students to have every opportunity to be successful - in all aspects of life.
As she said to parents who had children frustrated with how hard Ms. Hager was pushing them, “I want each student to have the tools and skills so they have every road available to them; whether it be parenting, tradesperson, military, or attending a college or university.”
She ran her classroom with high expectations for every student.
When she realized how the cancer was advancing, she expressed her wish to establish a foundation that would keep demonstrating her appreciation of the county she loved, and where she lived and worked.
Now, even though Jennifer is gone, her school, church, organizations that help animals in need, and even the hospital where she received treatment, can receive ongoing support because of her.
The Harrison County Community Foundation is a public foundation supported by donations from individuals and businesses. Its mission is to inspire and assist everyone to experience
philanthropy, producing positive and sustainable growth in Harrison County.
