After an unprecedented response, the Montgomery County Community Foundation (MCCF) has announced that the Lilly Endowment matching gift campaign is now successfully fulfilled. The Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT) initiative was a huge success and the $500,000 matching challenge was met in record time due to the overwhelming generosity and response of more than 300 donors.
The initial $500,000 goal was accomplished so quickly that the MCCF Board of Directors elected to use a portion of existing funds to extend the matching gift period as long as possible. The incredible response continued and the additional funds were exhausted in a few short days. In all, the total amount raised for our community during the matching period equates to just over $1.1 million dollars.
“Our community responded to the Lilly matching gift opportunity in an unbelievable way. We thank each and every donor for their gifts and for their contributions to improving the quality of life in Montgomery County,” stated Kelly Taylor, Executive Director. This was the seventh phase of these Lilly initiatives, which were designed to help strengthen Indiana community foundations and the critical role they play in improving the quality of life in our communities.
Question of the Week:

Apparently, younger people have said that the mural on a downtown wall near the courthouse in Crawfordsville is attractive. It has been widely reported that older people have said it is not. What's your opinion?
