Steuben County Community Foundation has served as a community leader and champion for improving quality of life since 1991. We are committed to providing grant funds for exciting projects, sustaining support for essential services, awarding scholarships for students to receive higher education, and connecting donors who care with causes that matter to them.
We love graphs and looking at numbers, but numbers don’t paint the full picture of the generosity of Steuben County. Our 2018 Annual Report is filled with stories of SCCF donors, the grants they have supported, as well as community projects and scholarships awarded through the Community Foundation. We kept the report focused on telling these stories, but you can see the full list of 2018 donors, grants, committee volunteers, and funds at steubenfoundation.org/2018.
(Keep an eye out for our 2019 Annual Report in November!)

Friends of Pokagon is a new nonprofit working to help Pokagon State Park remain the great place it is. They serve as the fundraising and friend-raising arm of the park, creating buzz and excitement about park activities while fundraising for expansions to programming. Although general operations at Pokagon are supported by entrance fees, the state may not have the funds or may not prioritize certain projects at Pokagon like updating historic structures. Friends of Pokagon hopes to provide a new opportunity for the 680,000 people per year who visit the park to contribute to its long-term viability as well.
