The mission of LaGrange County Community Foundation is to inspire and sustain generosity, leadership and service in our community.


The LaGrange County Community Foundation was founded in 1991 and, in less than twenty years, has grown to include endowed funds which provide ongoing funding for service organizations and projects throughout LaGrange County.

A healthy community foundation has made it possible for well over $13 million to be used for the benefit of LaGrange County residents since its founding. Funds from Lilly Endowment, Inc., Cole Foundation and Dekko Foundation have increased the value of community contributions.

The investment philosophy of LaGrange County Community Foundation is: "We are committed to preserving the purchasing power of assets entrusted to our care. Philanthropic dollars should provide as much service 100 years from now as they do today. Investment and distribution decisions are made with this goal in mind."
