This endowment was created through a generous donation by a Warrick Parks benefactor to maintain and grow Warrick County’s parks and trail system. Over time, and as the Warrick Parks Foundation Endowment grows, it will provide funds for the maintenance of Warrick County's parks and trails in perpetuity.
About the Warrick County Community Foundation
Established in 1998, the Warrick County Community Foundation is one of over 800 community foundations in the United States today. The Community Foundation is a charitable resource devoted to our local community. It helps people make meaningful gifts that improve life in Warrick County, Indiana today and for generations to come.
The Warrick County Community Foundation is part of the Community Foundation Alliance (The Alliance), a network of nine community foundations serving counties in southwestern Indiana. The Alliance, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, provides management and administrative expertise to county-wide community foundations, empowering each to promote philanthropy, build endowments, and improve well-being in our local community. The Alliance Board of Directors is the governing body and is comprised of up to two representatives from each county affiliate. All are civic-minded volunteers who live or work in the counties they serve.
The Warrick County Community Foundation is guided by a County Advisory Board comprised of local leaders promoting philanthropy, building endowments, identifying community needs, and improving the well-being of our community. Grantmaking and scholarship recommendations are made by committees comprised of Warrick County advisory board members and other local representatives.
