Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) recently awarded three grants to local nonprofit organizations in April. These grants will support important projects and initiatives in our community with a total of $44,929 in funding.

Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana was awarded $10,500 to stock ten existing Little Free Library News Rack Boxes for a twelve-month period with art supplies. The rack boxes can be found all over Harrison County at locations like Harrison County schools, Harrison County Public Library, Indian Creek Trail, and the YMCA of Harrison County.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana was awarded $15,000 to support the 2023-2024 Harrison County School to Work Expansion Program. This program connects high school students from Corydon Central and South Central with employee mentors from various employers in the area, including Fred Smith Store Fixtures, to promote college/career readiness.

Harrison County Arts (HCA) was awarded $19,429 to purchase items to enhance their newly renovated gallery, such as presentation equipment, furniture, and window treatments. The funds will also be used to expand their IT security and communication management equipment.

Julie Moorman, HCCF President & CEO, expressed excitement about partnering with three excellent nonprofits in Harrison County to make a positive difference. “By awarding these three grants, HCCF is demonstrating its ongoing commitment to supporting the arts and positive mentoring opportunities within the community.”
