The Hancock County Community Foundation, Inc. (HCCF) is prepared to respond to the rapidly developing situation in our community caused by COVID-19.

As the county’s lead charitable grantmaker, informant of community needs, and convener of funding resources, we ask you to join us in this effort by contributing to a new community relief fund.

Heart for Hancock is a fee-free pass-through fund, established by the HCCF Board of Directors, that will allow our foundation to quickly mobilize 100% of these charitable dollars to local organizations serving Hancock County.

HCCF is and will continue to gather intel and collaborate with other funders to make grants:
*Thoughtfully
*Effectively
*In coordination with others
*In recognition that there are limited resources and that this situation will have long reaching effects

Our generous community is asking, “How can I help?” This is a wonderful time to use your local community foundation as a reliable resource to assist organizations that are serving neighbors in distress.


Give where you live. Grow where you live.

HCCF provides philanthropic leadership by encouraging giving, learning, community pride and civic engagement. Working with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent endowment funds is critical to the organization’s mission. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. HCCF has granted millions of dollars since its inception in 1992.

Simply put, we help people achieve their philanthropic dreams.
