Foundation Objectives

The Hillsboro Community Foundation’s motto of “Building Our Community by Connecting Donors Who Care with Causes that Matter” was coined in 2009. The motto built upon the four original objectives outlined at the founding in 2004:

  • to advise and assist donors who could benefit by using the HCF to achieve their charitable objectives;
  • to receive grants or bequests for the benefit of both specific and broad community charitable interests;
  • to make grants from unrestricted community endowment funds to benefit worthy Hillsboro-area charitable, benevolent, cultural, religious, civic, health, scientific and educational purposes;
  • to encourage and assist qualified not-for-profit organizations in establishing their own endowments and restricted funds as part of the HCF.
