Great things have happened since the Heron Lake-Okabena Community Foundation was organized in 2001.
For the Cities of Heron Lake and Okabena
Through fundraising events, memorials and other donations, we met our goal of raising $25,000 in 2004. Our partner, the Southwest Initiative Foundation matched these local gifts, increasing the size of our endowment fund to $50,000. We immediately started accepting grant applications from local organizations and reinvesting in our community.
