Funds collected by the HPCF are added to the endowment fund and managed by our Investment Committee. The fund has provided a consistent return, enabling the Foundation to regularly increase total grant dollars awarded.
Grants are awarded on an annual basis to qualified nonprofits and agencies who have completed a rigorous application process. Each grant applicant is assigned a liaison from the Foundation’s Board of Directors, who researches the agency and makes a funding recommendation to the entire Board. In addition, a comprehensive review of the organization’s governance and finances ensures that funds go where they will make the greatest impact in our community.
These annual grants provide funds for new initiatives and continuing programs that nurture children, strengthen families, assist older adults, support individuals with disabilities, develop leadership skills and confidence in teens, enhance artistic experiences, and more.
