Impact Fund Campaign

The first endowment fund established through the Hillsboro Community Foundation was the Hillsboro Impact Fund.  The idea was to create a permanent source of investment earnings that could be distributed to charities and projects through an annual grant-making process.

To raise money for the fund, a community-wide campaign was begun in 2006 with a goal of $250,000.  By December 2007, contributions and pledges totaling more than $265,000 had been received from more than 100 donor households and businesses. 

The success of the Impact Fund campaign is a tribute to the generosity of the Hillsboro-area community and the desire to ensure that the well-being of the community will always remain a priority.
