Non ProfitGrants & Scholarships
The Hendricks County Community Foundation, Inc. (HCCF) is an independent, local nonprofit organization that partners with generous people who care about Hendricks County, Indiana. It’s a way for local people to come together and solve local challenges facing our community. Through HCCF, donors can create a long-term impact and legacy in our community. HCCF enables a larger impact beyond what one individual nonprofit or donor can accomplish by working as an advocate for the whole nonprofit sector and connecting residents and organizations across the county.
HCCF grew out of the earlier Greater Plainfield Community Foundation, which was founded in January of 1993 to support charitable projects in Plainfield and to provide scholarships to students graduating from Plainfield High School. In 1996 our mission was expanded to cover all of Hendricks County, and the Plainfield Community Foundation was renamed the White Lick Heritage Community Foundation. The name was changed to the Hendricks County Community Foundation in 2005. The Community Foundation currently manages assets of over $21 million in a collection of funds created by individuals, families, businesses and organizations for charitable purposes. These funds are invested to generate income that is granted back to the community. In 2021, the Community Foundation gave over $2 million in grants to benefit individuals and charitable organizations.
