    Spotlight


    The Tomorrow Starts Today campaign aims to raise $6.5 million for Porter County. Through creating a Center for Community Philanthropy, a $1 million matching fund to help nonprofits expand endowments, and a $1.5 million matching fund to expand grant making, Tomorrow Starts Today empowers us to work together to do greater good.

    “As Winston Churchill said, ‘We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.’ Philanthropy is giving and caring. It’s sharing what you have—your time as well as your dollars.”- Jacki Stutzman
