The Norton County Community Foundation was established in 1994 for the purpose of supporting local charitable activities in Norton County through endowments made to the foundation.
Thanks to its generous donors, NCCF has reinvested more than $10 million into the community through grants for qualifying projects and programs.
NCCF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation eligible to receive tax deductible donations. Gifts may be for unrestricted use, allowing Foundation leadership to utilize the contribution for an area of greatest need, or gifts may be designated for a specific purpose.
All contributions to the fund will be available for allowable projects and programs that will promote the general welfare of the residents of Norton County, protect its rich heritage, and provide incentive for its continued growth.
Recommendations for the use of the fund will be made by the Board of Directors, whose responsibility will be to assure donors that the money and/or property entrusted to the Norton County Community Foundation is administered in a prudent and accountable manner.
Norton County Community Foundation gives residents an opportunity to invest in their community through wills, trusts, life insurance and gifts. It benefits the giver, the gift is forever and every dollar is used to benefit Norton County.
