Build Your Endowment

The Porter County Community Foundation partners with nonprofits to create, build, and manage permanent endowment funds that benefit their organizations and our community forever.

More than 90 nonprofits are building endowments with us to benefit their organizations.

PCCF can partner with your nonprofit to create, manage, and invest funds to benefit your organization. Nonprofit endowment funds enable organizations to plan for a stable and secure future.

Reserve a Room in the Nonprofit Conference Center

PCCF houses the Nonprofit Conference Center, which consists of three rooms, Dune, Harvest and Lake (Harvest & Lake can be combined) and can be arranged to accommodate both small and large meetings.

The Center was designed to create a place where community is celebrated through the sharing of ideas and the fostering of deeper relationships. Nonprofits serving Porter County can rent a room in the Center for free.

Together, we can create a more vibrant community for Porter County to thrive.
