In late 1996, community leaders in Pulaski and Starke Counties decided to join counterpart organizations in Cass, Fulton, and Miami Counties as affiliates of the Northern Indiana Community Foundation (NICF), and by 1997 had formally begun operations. On 31 March 2002, the Pulaski County Community Foundation (PCCF), with its own Winamac office and a part-time staff, officially became an independent 501(c)3 organization. PCCF ran its first independent granting cycle that year, awarding more than $12,000 to local projects and organizations. A full-time executive director was hired in 2003, and PCCF continued to grow. By the end of 2007, PCCF’s 10th anniversary, total assets exceeded $6.6 million.
Today, the Community Foundation of Pulaski County (CFPC), as it is now known, is continuing to develop philanthropy in Pulaski County. CFPC accepts gifts online, runs grant and scholarship programs online, and has been reconfirmed with state and national standards for community foundations.
