The Foundation has 60  funds currently awarding scholarships. In 2018 due to the generosity of donors like you, the Blackford County Community Foundation is distributing $99,795  in scholarships to graduating seniors, current college students, and non-traditional students.

Our donors often honor the memories of their parents, grandparents, husbands or wives, sisters or brothers, sons or daughters, or co-workers—those who have served as admirable role models. We are honored to pass on these families’ and organizations’ generosity to Blackford County’s next generation.
