Double Your Giving Dollars

Through the generosity of Lilly Endowment, Inc. and our loyal donors, Benton Community Foundation now holds just over $7 million in assets. While most of you know about our beneficial scholarship programs, were you aware of the many other programs we help fund? Unrestricted funds account for nearly half of our assets and are used to award approximately $150,000 in grants each year!  These dollars help us meet pressing needs and take advantage of great opportunities for our community.

  • -Have you visited the Veteran’s Memorial wall in Otterbein?
  • -Do you know a child that receives books from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?
  • -Have you watched a family turn around their finances after taking a Financial Peace class?

These projects, and many more, have been made possible through unrestricted donations. The Foundation has until March 31, 2020 to reach our match goal of $500,000 from Lilly Endowment!

Your unrestricted gift will be matched $2 for $1 by Lilly Endowment!
