COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

WHAT WE DO? UNLOCK HOPE

  • As a community foundation, Gary Care's mission is very broad: to improve the quality of life in Gary, Norman County and our surrounding area. A foundation brings hope to challenging situations.

  • This breadth of our mission reflects our ability to make grants in any field of interest with a charitable benefit to our communities.

  • This flexibility allows us to serve a wider group of potential donors on the one hand and, on the other, a wider group of nonprofit organizations whom we consider our partners in improving local communities.
