Give to the Foundation

A personal, important decision to reach out and help

connecting people with causes:
banking on future graduates


Board members at Heartland Community Bank established a fund at the Foundation to honor the bank’s founders – Jeff Goben, left, and Steve Bechman.

Jeff and Steve are involved in the selection of scholarship recipients and are shown above with some of the recipients. The ongoing scholarship will be awarded to graduating seniors from Johnson County with an outstanding record of community service.

“Jeff and I both have tried to give back to the community throughout our banking careers and have encouraged our employees to do the same. Now our passion for this will live on through this scholarship fund.”

Heartland Bank founder

Deciding when and how much to give back to your community is a very personal decision.

Every gift, no matter the amount, is important and valued.

In fact, our total assets are made up of smaller endowments, called funds. Each fund is established with a separate, simple agreement between JCCF and the donor.

You can donate specifically to one of these funds or create your own. You also can establish a nonpermanent fund, which allows you to expend any or all of the fund. This is popular if you have a specific project in mind or want to consolidate your annual giving program.
