Happy Birthday Hancock County
Hancock County Community Foundation (HCCF) is proud to host our county’s 186th 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.
We invite you to honor, embrace and invest in Hancock County by participating in the birthday celebration beginning on February 24 through March 1. Please join citizens of all ages by participating in one or more of the following ways:
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.
Learn and Appreciate! Hancock County has a very interesting history! Visit the Historical Society display at Chapel in the Park, pick up a copy of the local authored book, Images of America Hancock County Indiana, at HCCF’s office or the Library, and visit www.countyhistory.com/hancock.
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 a Spirit of Community Fund by providing you with a beautiful Hancock County flag!
