4-H Fairgrounds Partners with Community Foundation

Western Indiana Community Foundation is pleased to announce its partnership with the Fountain County 4-H Council.

According to Dale White, CEO of the Foundation says, “The 4-H Council has established a pass-thru fund with the Community Foundation for the purpose of making improvements to the community building at the Fountain County 4-H Fairgrounds.  Members of the Council have recently begun to raise funds to upgrade the restrooms, refresh parts of the concession – kitchen area and make other updates to the building.  On the exterior they hope to improve the drainage and expand the parking area.  The Foundation will be processing all donations for this project.” 

Donations may be made on the Donate Here! link on this page or mailed to Western Indiana Community Foundation, ATTN: 4-H Fairgrounds – Capital Improvement Fund, PO Box 175, Covington, IN 47932.
