The Community Foundation Alliance is comprised of affiliate Foundations serving counties throughout southwestern Indiana. The Alliance provides each affiliate with management, administrative, and development expertise and services, so every local Foundation can focus on promoting philanthropy, building endowment, and making a difference in their community. Through the establishment of endowed funds created by caring donors to benefit community causes, Alliance affiliates work to improve the quality of life in their counties by distributing a portion of funds’ earnings to local non-profit organizations, in the form of annual scholarships and grants.
