Hancock County Community Foundation is proud to host our county’s 184th birthday celebration! We are setting aside an entire week for citizens to grow in their appreciation for the community in which they live, its rich history, and the desire to strengthen its future through giving and service. You are invited to take part in the celebration!
Learn! Take time to enjoy facts about your county in this publication. Appreciate! Hancock County has a very interesting history! Visit the Historical Society display at
Chapel in the Park, pick up a copy of the locally authored book, Images of America Hancock County Indiana, at HCCF’s office or the Library, and visit http://www.countyhistory.com/hancock
Encourage! Take a moment to talk with your children and grandchildren about their home county, and be sure to ask them what they’ve been learning during the Celebration Week at school.
Give Where You Live, Grow Where You Live! The appreciation of Hancock County’s history and identity is tied closely to the concept of investing in its future through the Spirit of Community Funds at HCCF. These permanent grantmaking vehicles allow organizations that serve our community to grow in strength and in their ability to deliver programs now and for generations to come.
Show your pride! We will thank you for investing in the future of Hancock County by providing you a beautiful Hancock County flag. Details can be found on page 3.
As the community grows, it is the Hancock County Community Foundation’s hope that through the appreciation of our county’s past and present, we flame the desire of our community’s citizens to use HCCF to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County long into the future.
