Community Foundation of Randolph County Activates Relief Fund in Response to March 14, 2024, Tornado(es) and Storms

WINCHESTER, INDIANA – The Community Foundation of Randolph County (CFRC) is activating its Randolph County Relief Fund in response to needs created by the March 14, 2024, tornado(es) and storm. 100% of the donations will be used to address the needs of those affected in our community, and anyone can give to the fund.

“We are thinking about everyone impacted by the recent storm and know there will be both immediate and longer-term needs for our fellow residents,” said Lisa Jennings, Executive Director of the Community Foundation. “While the full extent of the damage isn’t known at this time, we want to give anyone the opportunity to help by making a tax-deductible gift that will be used to directly address the needs of our community, now and in the near future.”

The Community Foundation will work with local government and nonprofit organizations to allocate grants from the Relief Fund to provide assistance to those in need and determine how much of its own financial resources will be directed to emergency relief.

Those interested may give online to the Randolph County Relief Fund (, make a check payable to CFRC/Relief Fund and send to CFRC, 120 W. Washington St., Winchester, Indiana, or drop by our office at the same address in downtown Winchester, Indiana, 8am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday.
