This year on Giving Tuesday, Give Local in Hendricks County

The Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF) is encouraging Hendricks County residents to join together and give local on Giving Tuesday–November 28, 2023. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that encourages philanthropy and celebrates generosity. It inspires people to take action to improve their communities, give back to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world.

Our local nonprofit organizations–small and large, local and regional–serve our community in vital ways and improve the quality of life here in Hendricks County. “Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to provide support to our local nonprofits,” said William Rhodehamel, President and CEO of HCCF. “Together we have the power to transform Hendricks County into a more vibrant, giving community. We are so proud to give back to the local nonprofits who work tirelessly day in and day out to make our county the absolute best it can be.”

Nonprofits serving Hendricks County are encouraged to send one-minute videos to be shared on the HCCF Facebook page ( on Giving Tuesday to encourage charitable giving. Last year on Giving Tuesday, HCCF raised over $77,000 for local nonprofits on just this one day.

No matter what your passion is, HCCF hopes local residents find a Hendricks County nonprofit to give to this Giving Tuesday. If you’re undecided, HCCF is encouraging the community to give to HCCF’s Opportunity Fund, it’s largest unrestricted Community Enhancement fund. This fund makes $70,000 in annual grants to nonprofits doing critical work in our community. Any amount of gift to the Opportunity Fund (or any unrestricted fund at HCCF, like Legacy Funds) will be doubled!

The Community Foundation is excited to see the impact of Giving Tuesday on our community this year. Remember, no matter what organization you support on Giving Tuesday, make sure it’s local. And join HCCF on Facebook for more details on Giving Tuesday.
