Armstrong Dan Arnholt 538 Franklin St. • Columbus, IN • 812-376-7772 GivinG = Community Fund = meetinG needs Heritage Fund’s Board of Directors recently voted to rename its primary fund for serving emerging community needs from the Unrestricted Fund to the Heritage Fund Community Fund. The community foundation’s 2009 theme is connecting the dots....needs…community…giving. The goal of the name change is to help donors and potential donors better understand the Community Fund’s purpose, as well as that of Heritage Fund. The renamed Community Fund reflects our focus on connecting resources given from the community to needs that exist. Giving to the Community Fund is an opportunity for citizens to directly enhance the well-being of those who live and work in the Bartholomew County area. Gifts given to the Community Fund this year resulted in funding grant requests from area notfor-profits, as well as start-up funding for major community initiatives such as Book Buddies, the Welcoming Community Project and CAMEO (Columbus Area Multi-Ethnic Association). Recent examples of grants awarded from this fund include 20 Technical Assistance Grants totaling $50,000. These grants were awarded to area not-for profit organizations for capacity-building and collaborative projects. speCial announCement We are pleased to announce that for your convenience online giving is available for the Community Fund, along with all of our other funds on the Heritage Fund website at David S.

Quick Mayor Fred Armstrong announces the Jim Henderson playground On September 3, 2009 the long awaited groundbreaking for the new Commons was held at the site on Washington Street. A large crowd of community members gathered to celebrate this community event. Mayor Fred Armstrong thanked all who helped make this dream a reality. He then recognized Jim Henderson, retired Cummins CEO and former Heritage Fund Board Member, for his leadership in raising funds needed for the project. Mayor Armstrong announced the new playground would be named the Jim Henderson Playground in his honor. Completion date for The Commons is Spring 2011. The fundraising campaign – A Cause in Common will continue through 2010 allowing all community members to “Give their Piece” and get their names on a wall in the building. Brian P. Russell Kevina A.
