Denny and Evie Chapman have honored their family with the creation of a new endowed fund, and in so doing, have benefitted from a $1 to $1 matching gift opportunity made possible through a grant called GIFT VI, awarded to HCCF by Lilly Endowment.
The Dennis C. and Evelyn C. 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 Chapman’s will receive a $1 match for every $1 gifted.
