Heartland Community Foundation meets its match

Ellis, Trego and Rooks counties all exceeded the $50,000 fund-raising goal this year to take full advantage of matching funds available from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation.

The three counties served by the Heartland Community Foundation each brought in sufficient donations to receive the Hansen Foundation’s full match. Even with the challenges of a global pandemic, total giving increased by more than 10 percent overall.
