Focus Areas

The Heartland Bank Community Foundation (HBCF) was formed to be a resource to guide community prosperity through organized philanthropic efforts. The Foundation places particular emphasis on two targeted areas of focus established to guide giving and promote understanding of the objectives of the Foundation.

Our two areas of support are:

  • Early Childhood and Adolescent Development programs and initiatives that are intended to reinforce and stabilize our local communities by creating paths to future success for youth and by advancing foundational academic, social and emotional support systems for at-risk children and teens. 
  • Family Strengthening and Enrichment programs and initiatives that establish and encourage holistic approaches to sustain and support immediate and extended families through meaningful connections and shared experiences, and to strive toward positive outcomes and vital opportunities for children and families. 

If your organization is requesting support from HBCF, please be sure that your organization's programming can be defined within one of the two categories listed above before completing the application process. While we thoughtfully consider all funding requests, priority will be given to those applications that demonstrate intentional commitment to results in these areas of giving.

If you have any questions regarding the specific areas, please email us at HBCF@Heartland.Bank.
