The Hardin county Community Foundation held their annual grant awards presetations on Thursday. Matt Jennings, Vice-President of the Hardin County Community Foundation talks about the purpose of the County Community Foundation.


“The Hardin County Community Foundation was formed twenty-six years ago by members of our community that had a vision of letting people donate to donate to something where the principal is protected and managed well and that would create earnings. Those earnings would then be given back to the community organizations for youth, for senior citizens, church organizations, any kind of charitable organization or entity within the county.” Said Jennings.


Jennings explains this year's awards.

“This year we received 174 applications that totaled requested dollars of $350,000. We had to pare that down through a process that the grant committee goes through to a process that the grand committee goes through, to 119 grants that were awarded this evening for 132,000 with two of those as bequests and five scholarships to area students.” Jennings Said.
