Other leadership roles during his tenure include Grants Committee Chair, Finance Committee Chair, and Board Treasurer.
Since retirement as Central Indiana Power’s CEO, Tom has developed a passion for photography and has donated hours to HCCF in his unofficial role as event photographer. He and Carol have regularly attended events and both have served as excellent ambassadors for HCCF.
The Thomas N. and Carol L. Seng Community Development Fund will provide resources for the unrestricted benefit of Hancock County. Grants from the fund, alongside the Hancock County Enrichment Fund, and other named Community Development Funds, will addresses important issues in our community. These funds are comprehensive, unrestricted endowments that address a broad range of local needs, including future needs that often cannot be anticipated at the time a gift is made. Grants address long-term solutions, respond quickly to emergencies, and meet changing social, cultural, educational, and environmental needs.
As long as match dollars are available, community members who invest in the future of our community with a gift to the Hancock County Enrichment Fund or establish a named endowment fund, like the Seng Family, will receive a $1 match for every $1 gifted.

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 $10 million since its inception in 1992.
