Here at the Community Foundation of Boone County (CFBC), we strive to promote partnerships and collaborations to create vibrant communities and make the greatest impact. Since 1991, we have granted over $25 million from our various funds to nonprofit organizations and programs working to solve critical challenges in Boone County. When we connect people with passions to nonprofits with needs, local needs are met!

To continue accomplishing our mission of creating a thriving community for all, we applied for and received a leadership planning grant through Lilly Endowment, Inc.’s initiative Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT VII). This grant will support many aspects of community development, including a thorough needs assessment of Boone County. CFBC has partnered with Transform Consulting Group (TCG) to facilitate the community needs assessment and solicit feedback from the county. This assessment will be conducted in various ways, including the CFBC team, TCG staff, and community partners attending community events and meetings, hosting community meetings, scheduling one-on-one sessions with Boone County citizens and leaders, and surveying Boone County residents from all areas of the county. The goal of the needs assessment is for CFBC to better understand the needs and opportunities Boone County residents would like addressed and then generate innovative ideas on how CFBC can take a leadership role in filling those needs.

So how can YOU get involved? There are many options!

The survey has closed. However, if you would like to connect with us and share your input, please contact Julie Reagan, Development & Communications Director for CFBC, at jreagan@communityfoundationbc.org or call 765.482.0024.

 

First, we would love for you to complete the survey. It takes around 10 minutes and can be accessed via the button above (we can also mail a paper copy when requested). We want to know YOUR opinion on your experience in Boone County!

Second, we are looking for community partners to come alongside us to help assist with the assessment. This option is different for everyone, based on what works best for you: it could be leading a discussion within a group you already participate in, sending the survey to your friends and community connections, emailing it, or sharing it on social media. The more Boone County residents who embrace this assessment and spread the word, the higher number of responses and more accurate depiction of Boone County we will receive!

We look forward to learning more from our community and strengthening ourselves to best lead Boone County. Together, we will all continue to make it better in Boone by making a major Boone impact. Contact us with questions and to become a community partner!
