Learn about Grantmaking
HCCF manages over 200 different funds, each with a different purpose. These funds provided over $1.74M in grants in 2020 to support nonprofits and projects across Hendricks County and beyond.
Generally, nonprofits apply to HCCF’s unrestricted funds, which provide about 30% (approximately $240,000) of HCCF’s annual grantmaking each year.
From March 2020 to March 2021, our primary focus was responding to the COVID-19 crisis. Our unrestricted grants program is currently on hold as we redevelop the program to meet our 2019 Community Needs Assessment findings. All other funds will continue as normal.
We anticipate two primary, unrestricted grants programs in 2020:
- Community Unity Grants Program (Live in April)
- Unrestricted Grants Program (Currently in development; expected launch date: July 2020)
