    Creative fundraising has been a signature of the Cartlidge Barn Project including utilizing the Hendricks County Community Foundation’s new online giving platform HCGives.org.  The Cartlidge Barn’s “Foundation Project” was the first project on this site to get fully funded raising over $30,000.  The Cartlidge Barn’s second HCGives.org project is “Dress Her in White” which is raising funds to paint the barn once it has been raised.

    To kick off the “Dress Her in White” project, the State Bank of Lizton donated $1,000.00 through HCGives.org.  Faith Toole, Hendricks County Antique Tractor and Machinery Association and Cartlidge Barn Project fund representative, lauded, “The State Bank of Lizton’s support from the conception of the Cartlidge Barn Project Fund has been inspiring to our committee.

    Saturday’s presentation of $1,000.00 for HCGives.org to “Dress Her in White” was the icing on the cake!”

    Reconstruction of the Cartlidge Barn on the Hendricks County fairgrounds is scheduled for completion this fall.  The Community Foundation is making it even easier for you to give local through HCGives.org.
