Welcome to NCCF.

What is Our Mission?

The Noble County Community Foundation provides opportunities for residents and others to make charitable gifts and bequests to improve the quality of life and to benefit activities occurring within the county and region. The Noble County Community Foundation will become the recognized leader in gathering and sharing resources that benefit the community.
