Fund Impact
Harrison County Community Foundation has received a matching fund grant totaling $750,000 as part of the eighth phase of Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Initiative, Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT VIII).

HCCF will use the funding to support a Community Project related to Residential Substance Abuse Recovery Programs. Lilly Endowment Inc. has allotted $75,000 for this part of the Matching Funds Grant.

How the Matching Fund Program works:
To reach the overarching goal, the goal is to meet the $75,000 cumulatively. This would be the total amount for entities participating. If one entity raises more funds, it will receive more benefits on a first-come, first-served basis.

All donations must be designated directly to participating entities: Freed From Within, Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition DBA Genesis House, or House of New Beginnings, and paid directly to/via HCCF. Participating entities can use qualifying donations in this scenario as unrestricted funds, which will pass through HCCF and be matched 1:1 by Lilly Endowment Inc. *This is not an Endowment Fund. Funds will be dispersed directly to the designated organization(s) on a quarterly basis.
