Mission and Vision
The Tipton County Foundation exists for the broad-based philanthropic interests of and community benefit of residents of the defined geographic area of Tipton County, Indiana. The Foundation is a tax-exempt, nonprofit, autonomous, publicly supported, nonsectarian philanthropic institution. Through philanthropic donor services, strategic grantmaking, and constructive leadership, your hometown community foundation unites the gifts of many to sustain the causes that matter to all— now, and for all generations to come.
Since its founding in 1986, the civic-spirited volunteers responsible for TCF’s Board leadership, fund-raising, investment decisions, and grantmaking have built a substantial endowment that will never be spent. The income earned from investments is used to help meet Tipton County’s charitable needs– from social services for youth and senior citizens, to art, culture, education, recreation, historical preservation, animal welfare, and community development projects of all types. TCF is also a conduit for individual support of organizations, receiving non-endowed contributions that are earmarked and sometimes matched for local needs.
