The Porter County Community Foundation is currently matching donations made to the We Are Porter County Emergency Response Fund.

Thanks to a group of long-time community supporters--Jacki Stutzman, Andy and Sue Arnold, Stewart and Kathryn McMillan, and David Milligan--contributions are being matched dollar-to-dollar up to $40,000.

Grants from the fund will be directed to Porter County nonprofits to assist them in meeting increased need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I am honored to be included in this group of people who care deeply about our community," said Jacki Stutzman, matching donor and Community Foundation board member. "We hope others will give generously to the Emergency Response Fund knowing that their gift will be worth twice as much."

"Generosity will play a crucial role in helping our community address the challenges caused by the COVID-19 crisis," said Bill Higbie, president and CEO of the Porter County Community Foundation. "The Foundation is grateful to this special group of friends who have stepped forward to inspire others to give."

The Foundation and United Way of Porter County are working together to disburse rapid response grants to nonprofits on the front lines of protecting and meeting basic needs of Porter County residents.

Contributions can be made on the Foundation's website at or by sending a check to the Porter County Community Foundation, 1401 Calumet Ave., Valparaiso, IN 46383
