2014 marks the 39th year of unCommon Cause, the Columbus Area Arts Council’s largest annual fundraiser. Each year the community comes together to celebrate and raise funds for the arts in Columbus. And each year we celebrate with a different theme that helps to set the backdrop of the night’s festivities, that includes dinner and dancing. Live and silent auctions complete the evening’s goal of raising funds for the Arts Council.

The Community Center of Hope, Inc., (CCH), a 501(c)3 non-profit of Hope, Indiana, has been selected as one of two non-profit recipients to receive a matching endowment for 2014 from Heritage Fund, The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County. In order to receive this matching endowment from the Heritage Fund, CCH must raise $10,000 that will contribute to this fund.
What is an endowment?
An endowment is an investment whose capital cannot be withdrawn, but the interest earned each year can be used by the Community Center of Hope, Inc. for the center’s needs, such as:
scholarships for low-income families in need of child care
supporting operating costs of the Hope Food Bank which is housed on the center’s property
providing support for capital projects that would benefit the community and CCH’s clients
How can you help?
First and foremost, any donation you make to this fund will be appreciated, big or small! Simply pledge the amount you wish to donate and enter your credit card information in Tilt.com’s secure payment center. Once our campaign has reached the “tilt” threshold of $8,000, payments will be processed and you will receive a receipt for to tax-deductible donation.
(If you would like to make a donation by cash or check, please see the “Want to make a donation in person?” section below.)
Second, spread the word! Tell your family, friends, co-workers, clubs, organizations, church congregation, anyone and everyone about out fundraiser. Send out emails, post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, whatever social media site you use! Send it across the country- anyone can donate!! Simply direct others to this site, where they can make a secure online donation, and ask them to help spread the word, too.
Our Tilt campaign must reach the “tilt” threshold of $8,000 before the campaign ends on November 25, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. before any money is collected. If we do not meet out “tilt’ threshold, no payments will be processed, so as you can see, every donation is important!

Are you a business owner?
Consider hosting a mini-fundraiser for us, with the money contributing to our online endowment Tilt campaign!
