The Hancock County Community Foundation recently awarded Campus Life New Palestine a $1,250 grant from the Hancock County Enrichment Fund and the Rotary Club of Greenfield. HCCF matched dollar for dollar the money raised by the Rotary Club of Greenfield at their Steak‘n Bake’n Raffle last fall. Campus Life New Palestine is focused on helping young men and women navigate their difficult teenage years. Campus Life New Palestine reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to place an emphasis on the physical, social and emotional aspects of their lives.
The grant dollars awarded to Campus Life New Palestine will help fund the program that continues to impact young lives every week. While participating in Campus Life New Palestine activities, teens have grown in maturity, self confidence, personality and their faith. By working with middle and high school students, Campus Life New Palestine is contributing to the betterment of Hancock County.
HCCF works with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent funds called endowments. 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 over $8.7 million since its inception in 1992.
