OUR BEGINNING

In 1979, a group of civic-minded individuals sought to raise funds for the establishment of a community foundation, as a way to promote charitable giving for the betterment of the community.It was decided that the Boy Scout Cabin at Johnson Lake should be sold, with the proceeds to be invested.Those proceeds were the founding funds for the Elwood Area Foundation, which was established in 1980.Thanks to the foresight of these far-thinking individuals, the Elwood Area Foundation will serve the Elwood Area for years to come.

 

MISSION

The mission of the Elwood Area Foundation is to encourage, enhance and provide opportunities for charitable giving; and to manage and distribute the funds in a responsible manner in order to strengthen the Elwood Area Community and benefit the future generations of our community.

Our areas of focus are Youth Enrichment, Community Improvement, and Donor Impact.Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, the Foundation is able to make an impact in all these area.To learn how you can help, please contact the Foundation Office or one of the Foundation Board members.

We welcome the opportunity to visit with you.
