*Video is a highlight of that night. Check the other post for the full video.

The Hardin County Community Endowment Foundation (HCCEF) was founded back in 2005. Since then the HCCEF has granted millions of dollars to various organizations, non-profits, and emergency services throughout Hardin county.

This year is no exception. With the County Endowment fund, there is $112,875 funds were granted to various projects. 18 were of non-Profit groups, 15 were awarded in 7 different communities and 3 county-wide organizations.

With the County Arts & Culture Endowment Fund, $9,410 was granted to 5 projects. 4 were non-profit groups from 4 different communities and 1 county-wide organization.

How the funding works for the HCCEF is some of the funds come from gambling done across the state. The money is split between counties that do not have a casino. The other way the HCCEF receives money is through donations done by residents.

If you would like to donate you can go through their website, Or you can contact, Tam Elerding, Program Director – 641-373-1379
