There's plenty to celebrate at the JCCF
The Jennings County Community Foundation and its supporters had plenty of reasons to celebrate at the non-profit's annual meeting held June 9 at the new Willow Lake Event Center.
First and foremost, the JCCF successfully wrapped up the Lilly Endowment's $500,000 fundraising campaign March 30. In meeting the match, a total of 552 donors responded with donations and 19 new funds were established.
Half of the $500,000 match program was set aside to build up the Foundation's "undesignated funds." Unlike the popular Scholarship funds which honor an individual and are for a specific purpose, the "undesignated fund" allows the organization to fund programs that address changing community needs.
