The Heritage Fund — The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County — is looking for donors for a new matching campaign to support the African American Fund of Bartholomew County.
An anonymous donor has offered to match up to $20,000 in donations in 2018 or 2019 to allow for a $40,000 increase in the fund.
The fund was created in 2012 and is meant to educate and inspire African Americans in Bartholomew County. It focuses on education, leadership development, arts and cultural events and more. The anonymous donor said the matching grant was meant to encourage tolerance in the community and respect for the African American community and those of other people of color.
