The SCCF’s 20th Anniversary Series
When we at the Starke County Community Foundation (SCCF) consider how to distribute grants in Starke County, we think about how we can make the biggest impact on the community. We believe that supporting non-profit organizations that work in the field of health and human services is one way that we can benefit our community on a large scale. Health and human service programs help to achieve equal access to health-related services and a commitment to meeting basic human needs. This increases the quality of life for the whole community.

Women’s Giving Circles are not unique to Fulton County. The Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) was aware of the widespread initiative. When the idea was brought up in a FCCF meeting, Judy Climie and Barb Lutterbein decided it was time to see if there were other women in the community interested in starting a Women’s Giving Circle. The two women began to contact individuals who they believed might want to be a part of the cause.
