Foundation launches endowment program

The Hillsboro Community Foundation has launched its first Legacy Endowment Program to benefit the Hillsboro Arts and Culture. Additional endowment programs to help other organizations and causes will be announced in the future.

The first endowment was announced at an Oct. 30 HCF meeting. Dick Stenson, HCF president and president and chief executive officer of Tuality Healthcare, said the program was designed to “encourage people to make philanthropic investments in this community for the long term.”

The Hillsboro Community Foundation was formed in 1986 to support projects and programs that enhance the quality of life in the city. Among other things, it has helped fund the creation of the Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center, played a critical role in the development of Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve, and helped save and create Noble Woods Park.

The Hillsboro Arts and Culture Endowment has already surpassed its initial goal of $25,000 to set up a fund with HCF. Funds generated by the announcement will be distributed through a competitive grant process administered by the Hillsboro Arts and Culture Council.
