Donor Fund Story:
The Jennie Thompson Foundation Fund was established in January 1994 at the Noble County Community Foundation because of a match opportunity from the Lilly Endowment. The Jennie Thompson Foundation was a local private foundation and it was one of several private foundations that realized the importance of having a county wide community foundation within Noble County. The Jennie Thompson Foundation created this fund with “unrestricted” monies, allowing the community foundation to meet those every changing needs within Noble County through grants.
