The White Family Foundation Fund is a donor-advised fund of HCCF. Donor-advised funds allow donors to simplify and consolidate all their charitable giving and provides the family the opportunity to make grant recommendations from their fund to HCCF to address community needs. HCCF assures the charitable qualifications of recommended grantees and handles all the administration details. The White Family supports initiatives that enhance the desire to live, work, and play in the communities where they have provided business services.
The family’s primary business interest includes Pride Investment Partners located in Greenfield. Pride was formed following the sale of GasAmerica Services in 2012 and holds investments in a variety of areas throughout the Midwest including hotels, strip centers, and retail stores; as well as residential and commercial real estate. Their latest venture included the opening of Leo’s Market & Eatery. The family is vested in keeping a solid focus on charitable giving within the communities in which they live and do business.
