Harmony Area Community Foundation


Fri, Jun 14th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Business Announcements

On May 31, 2012, a group of interested individuals first met to discuss the creation of a community fund through Southern MN Initiative Foundation (SMIF). By August of 2012, our SMIF agreement was finalized and the Harmony Area Community Foundation (HACF) was created with a mission “To serve the Harmony area by supporting projects which improve the quality of life and build a stronger community!” HACF provides a vehicle for donors to make charitable contributions for improving the community’s quality of life. HACF’s focus areas include parks, trails, Fillmore Central Schools, public library, arts and history, health and the environment, community support and growth.

HACF’s initial $26,500 seed money was received from the former Trust For a Better Harmony which had been instrumental in bike trail development and other community projects.

The Selvig Park playground equipment upgrade became HACF’s first special project. HACF’s $5,000 donation was eligible for a $5,000 matching grant from SMIF totaling $10,000 for the project. In addition, total contributions of approximately $6,000 have been deposited into the Selvig Park’s Special Project Fund. Most recently, the Fillmore Central Schools has received a $2,000 grant for their Computer Laptop Initiative which will enhance our students’ learning through the use of the latest technological tools. Presently, the Harmony Area Community Foundation is seeking proposals for future focus area projects or programs.

HACF’s advisory board’s marketing and fundraising efforts have been ongoing—brochure development, website development (harmonycommunityfoundation.com or harmonycommunityfoundation.org) and more recently the Founders Club fundraising appeal. SMIF has provided technical assistance with training, fundraising, and marketing. SMIF has provided HACF with a $500 grant for printing/marketing, along with the $5,000 Selvig Park grant, $2,000 Fillmore Central Schools grant and a $1 for every $2 challenge (maximum $1,250 match for $2,500 or more single contribution) grant for endowment fund contributions up to $5,000. 4.5 percent of the endowment fund balance will be used annually for approved HACF’s projects.

“It is now time for the COMMUNITY to become actively involved in the Harmony Area Community Foundation. The Founders Club is one of the first steps in creating awareness and raising funds for HACF’s endowment fund as well as pr .....
