Make an impact

Giving back to a community that has given so much to you is a good and proper thing to do. Some people give back by way of service and volunteerism, which is an important investment. But with the inauguration of the Hillsboro Com?munity Foundation and its Impact Fund campaign, current and former residents can give back in a way that keeps on giving long after they have moved on to an eternal residence.

The Impact Fund is a venture worthy of consideration. It is not an annual collection drive, but a one-time effort to establish an endowment fund that will generate interest income through investments. The interest income will be awarded to individuals and groups spearheading projects that are deemed to benefit the community. Your cash gift to the Impact Fund will never be spent. Instead, it will continue to generate income that will build a better community for today?s generation as well as tomorrow?s.

If you want to make a long-term difference in Hillsboro, consider the Impact Fund. ?DR
