1st Source Bank contributes funds to Porter County Community Foundation
1st Source Bank recently presented the Porter County Community Foundation with a check for $25,000 in support of the Foundation’s Tomorrow Starts Today campaign. The campaign raised funds to create a unique Center for Community Philanthropy - a nonprofit conference center - as well as build the community’s endowment funds and increase grantmaking.
The Patriotic Plaza in front of the new Center, which is located at 1401 Calumet Avenue in Valparaiso, was named in honor of the gift from 1st Source Bank.
“1st Source Bank is excited to partner with the Community Foundation in bringing the Center for Community Philanthropy to Porter County,” said Matt Vessely, Regional President of 1st Source Bank. “We look forward to the positive impact the Center will have on nonprofit agencies and our community as a whole.”
“We are grateful for 1st Source Bank’s involvement in the community and support of the Foundation,” said Bill Higbie, President and CEO of the Porter County Community Foundation. “Their generous investment will allow the Center to serve the nonprofit organizations in Porter County, and it recognizes our community’s appreciation for those who have served, and continue to do so, in a very special way.”
