American foundations gave nearly $50 billion in 2013, including $337,934 last year by the Community Foundation of Jackson County and its various endowments, donor-advised funds and scholarship funds.
That’s a massive investment in our nation and our local community, made possible by the generosity of Americans, including our friends and neighbors across Jackson County.
That generosity is supported by sound tax policies from Washington. With Sens. Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly back in the Hoosier state this month for August recess, now is a good time to showcase the important work of philanthropy in our community.
