We Love Where We Live

Jasper Newton Foundation

 

The Jasper Newton Foundation Inc. is a local nonprofit organization that connects residents of Jasper County and Newton County, Indiana with causes they care about through coordinated investments and strategic grantmaking. It’s a way for local people to come together and solve local challenges facing Jasper and Newton Counties every day, leaving a long-term impact and legacy in the community. By working as an advocate for the whole nonprofit sector and connecting residents and organizations across the two counties, the Jasper Newton Foundation enables a larger impact beyond what one individual nonprofit or donor can accomplish.

Do Some Good While You Shop!

We love where we live. Jasper and Newton Counties are where we eat, grow, learn, teach, come together, worship, work, raise our families, and make the world a better place. So here is your chance to share the love – the love of where you live.

Proceeds from the “Love Where You Live” store will go back out into the community through the Jasper and Newton County Community Grant Funds to continue to make our own neighborhoods wonderful places to be.

Go on and brag a little and do some good while you shop.
