The Foundation has 49  funds currently awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors. In 2020 due to the generosity of donors like you, the Blackford County Community Foundation distributed $64,200 in scholarships to 38 graduates. Another five Foundation scholarship funds are also awarding $17,880 more in support to 29 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.
