Church Church Hittle and Antrim is proud to spotlight a special nonprofit organization that our attorneys have been deeply involved with for many years. The Community Foundation of Boone County (CFBC) operates in the Zionsville area, aiming to unite people, organizations, and philanthropy to create a thriving community for all by connecting donors and volunteers to nonprofits. CCHA Law has strong connections to the Community Foundation of Boone County, with Beth Sease and Steven David from CCHA Law having both served as board members for eight years and as presidents for two years.

“The Community Foundation of Boone County has been a lifeline for donors who want to impact their community and for charities making a critical difference in Boone County. The resources, education, and collaboration provided help inform the community about how to work together to benefit community needs,” Beth Sease shared.

Reflecting on his time with the CFBC, Steven David shared that “serving on the Community Foundation of Boone County was one of my greatest joys. It was an honor to serve Boone County. The Foundation is literally the foundation for all of Boone County. Its mission is critical, and it does amazing work.”

CCHA Law attorney Andrew Manna also has a close connection to the CFBC as their 2023 Lionel Dubay Youth Sports Award recipient!
