2022 Annual Report

OUR MISSION The Community Foundation exists to champion philanthropy and build endowments for the lasting good of Whitley County.

“If you are really thankful, what do you do?” “You share.”

~ W. Clement Stone


Transparency Stewardship Integrity Discretion

Professionalism Fairness Impartiality Collaboration

The Community Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 public charity guided by a volunteer board of directors. We are funded through charitable donations by people and organizations driven by the desire to do good. The building was made possible thanks to meaningful grants from private foundations and a few supportive private donors. Foundation leaders intentionally avoided a capital campaign that would have put the organization in competition with the very nonprofits we are here to support. The land for the new structure was secured through a trade with Columbia City. The historic 163-year-old red brick house that served us well for 23 years will now be home to the Columbia City Parks Department. While the building went up, business carried on. Our efforts on behalf of Next Level Whitley County continued to unfold as we sought to find solutions to a lack of vocational training and mental health services in our community. An unforeseen change in plans forced the collaborative partners to re-think a space for expanding much needed drug and alcohol recovery services. Meanwhile, the Whitko Career Academy thrived. WCA was launched as another Next Level Whitley County project in partnership with Whitko Schools and the Don Wood Foundation. The vocational training center offers students unique learning opportunities on first-class equipment. Classes are led by experienced, dedicated instructors. Our collaboration with Community Corrections continued to enjoy success as individuals interested in learning new skills took evening CNC classes for certification. I’m pleased to share that nine new endowment funds were established in 2022. The very core of what we do is serve donors by helping them to fulfill their charitable goals. In addition to several new scholarships, we now have the means to support single mothers who experience the heartache of a stillborn child and need help with funeral costs. Nyah’s Angels Fund was created by two very compassionate donors who believe that grief needs its own space, free of worry and concerns over finances related to the loss. There was also an endowed fund established to help underwrite the costs of maintaining K-9 officers for the Department of Natural Resources. We’re going to the dogs – and that’s a good thing! To all of the donors who contributed gifts past and present, we hope this report generates some personal satisfaction – look what you made possible!

Director’s Report: Sharing Information When it comes to transparency, we aspire to have glass pockets. Our organization exists in part to attract private donations for community good. We do this work on a platform of core values which includes transparency. Over the past three decades, the Community Foundation has built credibility and public confidence by openly sharing our grantmaking, leadership, and financial activities. This annual report is an important part of the process. On the following pages readers can learn about the various endowment funds we oversee; the unrestricted grants and deserving scholarships awarded in 2022, as well our professionally audited financial statements. It’s also our chance to publicly thank the many donors who have shared resources; their desire to do good has fueled our work. In 2022, after four years of planning, the Community Foundation broke ground on a new building that will allow for continued expansion of services. As more donors seek to fulfill their charitable goals through our Foundation, we’ll need additional staff to carry out their wishes. Once the construction project was announced, questions turned to funding. We were surprised to learn that some people thought we are tax supported – a part of Whitley County government. We aren’t.

Thanks for sharing.

Sharing Our Secret

The Power of Endowed Giving

It’s really no secret – many of the grants and scholarships awarded in 2022 came from gifts made to the Community Foundation many years ago, while other contributions were recent. The secret rests in how donations are managed and invested – they are endowed. When someone makes a gift to an endowment at the Community foundation, their contribution is never spent. EVER. Instead, the gift is prudently invested to produce earnings. A percentage of those earnings are used to fulfill the donor’s intent in the form of grants and scholarships. Through a contractual fund agreement, the Foundation makes distributions based on the donor’s instructions and charitable goals. Typically, a portion of the earnings are set aside to ensure the fund continues to grow over time. As years go by, grants from endowment funds will far exceed their original gift. Best of all, these endowments are designed to last forever, meaning gifts will still be enhancing Whitley County for generations to come. In 2022, the Community Foundation grew to encompass 210 endowed funds.

The Gift of Family

“As is perhaps typical, our adoption journey is one with many turns. We started our process after much discussion and prayer in May of 2020. We had 3 amazing boys, but our hearts longed to hold a baby girl as well. We chose to complete our home study with a small agency in Indianapolis, and after a few months, also joined with an adoption consultancy out of Georgia in order to expand our opportunities to be matched. We cannot know how many expectant mothers we had been presented to, but we were never chosen. One day, in February, 2022, we received an email from our consultant about three siblings, twin girls and their older brother. Both Krista and I received this message separately, had already decided that we were going to respond and it only took one look at each other to know that we were going to say ‘yes’ to these kids. The next 24 hours were absolutely crazy as we were trying to figure out how we were going to manage 6 children in our home. Then we got a call... the family decided to choose somebody else. We were devastated. That experience opened our eyes to the world of older children in need of a loving home, something we honestly had never considered. Several weeks later, our oldest son, sitting down at the dinner table specifically prayed for an older sister. We were shocked. Even though we had been considering older children, we never imagined a child older than our boys. We tried to tell him that wasn’t very likely, but God had a different plan. In November 2022, responding to a letter that Krista had submitted, we received a call from NightLight regarding a girl in Virginia. She was 11, older than our boys. We cautiously agreed to explore the situation, met with her parents and despite the challenges we knew we would be facing, God immediately moved in our hearts to say yes. Jayne came home with us in January of this year and our adoption was finalized in August. In the past several months we’ve had our share of ups and downs, but God has been there every step of the way with everything that we’ve needed. Over the extended duration of our adoption journey, in addition to the emotional toll, the financial costs pile up. In 2022, as we were facing the costs of renewing our home study and consultancy agreements, Sierra’s Fund granted us a generous gift that removed that financial burden for the rest of the year. We are extremely grateful for that as it provided much-needed encouragement at the time and allowed us the opportunity to welcome home our daughter.” Written by: Krista and Jacob Bower

Matt and Hallie Grant are recognized as respected business leaders through their successful, international company, Sailrite; but first and foremost, they are parents. Like many families today, the Grant’s story is anything but traditional. The details as to how their family circle was made complete led the couple to establish Sierra’s Fund. The fund, named for their daughter, is an endowment meant to assist Whitley County residents navigating the adoption process to build their own families, now and for generations to come. “The moment Sierra was placed in my arms can’t be explained. The tears came streaming down my face, I couldn’t believe she was our daughter. The adoption process is full of highs and lows but I am here to tell you it is so worth it. I can’t image our family without her, she is exactly where she was meant to be.” ~ Hallie Grant

A Donor’s Bill of Rights Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights: 1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes. 2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgement in its stewardship responsibilities. 3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements. 4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given. 5.
