The purpose of the Horse Country Protection Program is to help protect Marion County’s agricultural lands, equine heritage, and unique natural springs by advocating for the development of a Rural Land Management Plan.
The Community Foundation provides a variety of channels to encourage donors to champion their passions by strategically investing in causes as opposed to randomly giving on impulse.
By providing leadership support for the Nonprofit Business Council, the Foundation strengthens the impact of social and cultural change in the community.
A key activity of the Council is Youth Philanthropy in Action (YPIA). This educational curriculum, taught in our schools, is teaching the next generation the importance of philanthropy.
