Key Causes

Our Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) keeps it finger on the pulse of the county, which means JCCF leadership has a keen sense of our dominant community needs.

Our Key Causes highlight those areas and JCCF collaborates with local organizations to further special projects through our JCCF Key Causes. And because these are existing funds, you can give at any level. It’s a perfect place for new philanthropists to experience the rewards of giving.

Give Now

All key causes

Imagine, you make any size gift to a cause that matters most to you. 

If growing up on a farm planted a passion you’re still cultivating, you can help with a gift to the Agriculture (Key Cause) Fund. Your donation, bundled with those of others who share your sentiments, will help fill our Agriculture “bucket” and that means increased resources and far-reaching impact. 

You can donate to as many Key Causes as you want. Plus, you choose how you want to give – how much and how often – there are no minimums.

You can:

  • Make a one-time donation
  • Schedule a recurring donation
  • Create a legacy gift in your will

All you need to do is choose an area that speaks to you and give accordingly.

Agriculture has long been part of the fabric of Johnson County, Indiana. Therefore, the Foundation has identified agriculture as a key cause worth supporting.
