Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Scott County Community Foundation has three strategic goals: asset development, grantmaking and community leadership.

Asset Development: Develop working relationships with professional advisors; cultivate relationships with current and potential donors.

Grantmaking: Through an intentional grantmaking process, link funding priorities to community needs.

Community Leadership: Increase and develop our relationship with local organizations; increase our internal capacity and sustain our operational excellence; increase community understanding of our organization while building a community culture of giving.

A diverse and skilled Board of Directors, along with a professional staff with many years experience, allows us to complete our goals. We have partnered with other organizations, such as United Way of Scott County for the Imagination Library program; and the community foundations in Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Washington counties for the Align Southern Indiana initiative.

We've surpassed numbers of registered children in the Imagination Library program. We have a record number of youth involved in the Youth Grantmaking Council. We have reached our goal of having an endowment value of $10 million by 2020.
