Bridging Community Needs with Responsive Giving
The Hardin County Community Endowment Foundation (HCCEF) is committed to improving the quality of life in our county and its communities by acting as a catalyst for charitable giving.
- We help donors support the issues they care about most.
- We make grants to community nonprofits.
- We help professional advisors serve their clients better.
HCCEF seeks to increase donors’ satisfaction with their own philanthropy, and, most importantly, increase the influence of their giving and its benefit to the public good. When charitable giving grows, our community is strengthened.
HCCEF is led by a volunteer board of directors. To utilize valuable staff expertise, investment management and office efficiency, we are an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. This affiliation makes it possible for us to provide many opportunities for philanthropists wishing to make a difference in Hardin County.
