Learn about Grantmaking

HCCF manages over 200 different funds each with a different purpose. These funds provide over $600,000 in grants each year to support nonprofits and projects across Hendricks County and beyond.

2018 Grantmaking by Fund Type

Generally, nonprofits apply to HCCF’s unrestricted funds which provide about 20% (approximately $180,000) of HCCF’s annual grantmaking each year.

Our unrestricted grants program is currently on hold as we redevelop the program to better meet the needs from our 2019 Community Needs Assessment. All other funds will continue as normal.

Check back in June of 2020 for more information on our competitive grantmaking.

If you have questions about HCCF’s grantmaking priorities or which type of grant you may qualify for, please contact HCCF Program Officer, Eric Hessel, at or 317.268.6240.
