2014 Blue Review

Welcome

Established in 1997, the Greene County Foundation serves the people of the Greene County community as a public charity. A volunteer board of directors governs the Foundation, whose makeup is as diverse as the community it serves. The Foundation has more than $5 million in assets and has granted more than $10.5  million since its inception. Over the last 15 years, the Foundation has had a philanthropic impact on every school, town, city and informal community in Greene County through multiple forms of donation such as permanent endowments, special projects funds, trusts, memorials and honoraria.  Donations of any size can be used to fund any of the endowed funds or scholarship funds.  Look under the funds page for a complete listing.  Support of the unrestricted fund allows the foundation to focus grants on the most immediate community needs which as we all know can  change from year to year.   Donations of cash, stock, real estate, life insurance, etc can be converted to address community needs, and all donations are tax deductible.   The mission of the Greene County Foundation is to inspire individuals to engage in improving Greene County now and for generations to come.

WOW Awards grant to Bloomfield Summer Lunch Program

The Women of Worth (WOW) Giving Circle, formed by the Greene County Foundation, helps with charitable causes throughout Greene County.   WOW pools its membership fees to award them to local charities annually.  On Tuesday, the group presented a $1,000 check to the Bloomfield Summer Youth Feeding Program.

The feeding program will be held Monday through Friday at Bloomfield First Christian Church, at the corner of Spring and Jefferson Street, starting June 2 and lasting throughout students’ summer vacation.  Students of all ages and household income levels are welcome to attend.  The program will begin with a meal at noon and continue with planned activities until 2 p.m.

WOW Member Mary Lou Quiel explained that the group feels the feeding program provides a valuable service for area kids.

“We have hunger in Greene County,” she stated.  “We don’t want children, especially, to go hungry, so whatever we can do to help with a program such as this is very important.

Summer Youth Feeding Program Director Jack Terrell said he was grateful for the assistance from WOW, and that he appreciated their way of giving back to the community.

Terrell is looking for volunteers to help staff the feeding program, and the sheriff’s department will conduct a free background investigation on anyone who wants to participate before they begin.  If you would like to volunteer your time to help, or donate money, please contact Jack Terrell at jrtnavy@yahoo.com.

The Greene County Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that inspires individuals to improve Greene County now and for generations to come through their contributions that provide lasting financial support for charitable needs.

Join the Women of Worth and get WOWED!

Women of Worth are outstanding women making a difference for Greene County.

The Women of Worth (WOW) Giving Circle had their formation meeting at a tea on April 12th and awarded their first grants.  The circle, formed by the Greene County Foundation, recognizes the importance local women place on helping charitable causes throughout Greene County.  Throughout our past, women have been integrally involved in establishing, maintaining and expanding many of our local charities.  WOW will help continue that legacy of making a difference for Greene County.  Through an annual contribution dollars are pooled and awarded to local charities that the WOW will select. This provides those in the group a chance to learn more about local needs and make a determination about those they wish to support for that grant cycle.  The awards will be made annually and the $120 membership fee, which makes the awards possible, is collected throughout the year.  Membership in WOW is open to anyone wishing to make a difference for the Greene County.

This year, WOW determine to award grants to the Jasonville Sr. Center, the Bloomfield Summer Lunch Program, and the Community Building renovation project at the 4-H Fairgrounds.

A Generous Hand.
A Growing Future.
