Welcome to Northern Indiana Community Foundation

Since 1993, the Northern Indiana Community Foundation, Inc. (NICF) has brought caring people and charitable endeavors together for the good of the community. The NICF serves the Community Foundations of Starke, Fulton and Miami Counties. This arrangement allows us to maximize our investment benefits and be more cost-efficient. Thus gifts can do more for the counties they are given to.

The NICF is a public trust, a public charity that gives donors flexible and tax-effective ways to ensure their charitable giving. Operating under state and federal laws, we work to build substantial endowment funds for our community through contributions large and small.
