Hancock County’s Future

The mission of The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life for all in the community.

This includes the youth of Hancock County. Those youth are our future.

Every child in our community deserves a Brighter Tomorrow. Thanks to an anonymous donor, The Community Foundation created the Brighter Tomorrows Fund. The Brighter Tomorrows Fund is a field of interest fund that will award grants based on the needs of youth in our community.

The Foundation will raise more than $300,000 to ensure their futures are bright. Bright looks different for every child. For some a brighter tomorrow might be a full school lunch, more education opportunities, needed medical care. A brighter tomorrow could be scholarships, more recreation options, special field trips. The possibilities are endless.
