The Henry County Community Foundation is a public charitable organization created by citizens of our community to enrich the quality of life for individuals and families in our county. The Foundation serves all of Henry County. Grants from unrestricted funds support a variety of programs in the fields of education, parks and recreation, the arts and community betterment. We have a particular interest in providing seed money for new programs designed to meet emerging community needs or to expand existing successful programs.
Grants are awarded to nonprofit, charitable organizations, which have been designated as having tax-exempt status. Preference will be given to those organizations showing existing matching funds for the project.
