Madison County Community Foundation Opens 2017 Scholarship Cycle As the costs of higher education rise, scholarship support to eligible students becomes increasingly valuable. The Madison County Community Foundation,
The Madison County Community Foundation's mission is to serve
the philanthropic aims of donors wishing to improve and
preserve Madison County now and in the future. Most of the
contributions made to the Foundation are endowed to support non-profit
programs and services. Awards and gifts are made from income created by
investing the principal of these endowed funds.
In this way, the Foundation assures donors that their contributions are a permanent legacy in the community. Pooled with the contributions of thousands of other donors, each gift plays a lasting role in the improvement of our county.
Regardless of the size or form of a gift to the Madison County Community Foundation, it is appreciated by the thousands of persons living here who benefit from grants and scholarships distributed by the Foundation.
In 1998, Madison County natives Harold J. and Hilda L. Anderson donated $1 million to the Foundation’s unrestricted fund. Although this remains the largest single gift in the history of our organization, the generous amount is only part of the story.
