A Little About Us

The Harrison County Community Foundation was created in 1996 by the Harrison County Commissioners with an initial donation of $5,000,000 from Caesars Indiana (now Horseshoe Southern Indiana.) To date, Horseshoe Southern Indiana has contributed over $174,500,000 providing the Foundation an incredible resource to serve the people of Harrison County.

In addition to our unrestricted assets, many individuals, families, businesses and non-profit organizations have contributed over $12,100,000 to establish permanent endowment funds providing vital support to projects benefiting our community.

 Leave a Legacy

The word legacy is frequently used to describe the property that people leave their heirs when they die. But every human being also leaves behind a non-material legacy – one that’s harder to define but often far more important. This legacy comprises a lifetime of relationships, accomplishments, truths, and values, and it lives on in those whose lives they’ve touched.

Your life is special, and you do so many things in it. In your life, you create a legacy. Have your legacy last forever by giving through your will or estate plan. Your life isn’t generic. Your legacy shouldn’t be either.
