White Family Foundation Fund grants $50,000

GREENFIELD, Ind. (August 9, 2023) – The Community Foundation of Hancock County (CFHC) recently awarded nine grants from the White Family Foundation Fund, a component fund of CFHC, totaling $50,000.
“We are delighted to share that, thanks to an unforeseen and exclusive financial contribution from Pride Investment Partners, the 2023 White Family Grant Cycle has been empowered to bestow a sum of $50,000 this year,” says President/CEO Mary Gibble. “The Community Foundation thanks the White Family and Pride Investment Partners for their generosity and dedication toward our community.”
The White Family Foundation Fund is a donor-advised fund of CFHC. Donor-advised funds allow donors to simplify and consolidate all their charitable giving and provides the family the opportunity to make grant recommendations from their fund to CFHC to address community needs. CFHC assures the charitable qualifications of recommended grantees and handles all the administration details. The White Family supports initiatives that enhance the desire to live, work, and play in the communities where they have provided business services, especially Shirley and the surrounding area.
The White family’s primary business interest includes Pride Investment Partners located in Greenfield. Pride was formed following the sale of GasAmerica Services in 2012 and holds investments in a variety of areas throughout the Midwest including hotels, strip centers, and retail stores; as well as residential and commercial real estate. Their latest venture included the opening of four Leo’s Market & Eatery locations. The family is vested in keeping a solid focus on charitable giving within the communities in which they live and do business.
CFHC provides philanthropic leadership by encouraging giving, learning, community pride and civic engagement. Working with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent endowment funds is critical to the organization’s mission. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. CFHC has granted millions of dollars since their inception in 1992.
