12/07/10 A new identity mark for the Community Foundation that is all-encompassing of Marshall County has been adopted by the Board of Directors at its recent meeting. The new mark will soon become visible on all of the Foundation’s materials. The previous logo, in use for nearly twenty years and highly regarded, will be retained but reserved for use only in official documents.
The newly adopted identity mark includes a square shape that is similar to the physical nature of Marshall County. It also gives recognition to the unique lakes, land and open skies that are present in the county and includes a symbolic red cardinal, the State Bird of Indiana. The hope of the community foundation to be seen as a resource with community roots so that great ideas can take flight is symbolically represented by the new logo.
In recent discussions with members of the community, the board of directors was informed that MCCF and its leaders are considered community-minded partners, trusted investors, visionary thinkers and opportunity connectors. These characteristics have been confirmed by the public as the personality of the foundation and its promise to its constituents.
Founded in 1991, the Marshall County Community Foundation exists to serve all of Marshall County, its people and its future through the growth and administration of endowment philanthropy.
