Community Investment

South Madison Community Investment

To date, we have invested over $6 million in grants to benefit South Madison County.

Beginning in 1993, the South Madison Community Foundation began investing in the people and places of South Madison County. Today, the impact we have made together can be seen throughout our communities.

Grant funds have:

— created, expanded, and enhanced space for public recreation in all four townships
— helped generations of learners through early literacy, library support, grants to teachers and mentors, and over a million dollars in scholarship assistance
— provided support for valued agencies such as fire and police departments, churches, and recreation leagues
— funded causes specified by donors as well as the changing needs of our ever-evolving communities
