Munster Civic Foundation

The Munster Civic Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all the citizens of Munster. The Munster Foundation was created in 1990 through an endowment of $2,000,000 from the Community Foundation, parent corporation of Community Hospital. The interest earned by this endowment is used to finance special gifts to our community which cannot be financed with tax dollars. The Foundation works closely with the Town of Munster, private individuals, the business community, and other organizations on a variety of projects that benefit Munster's residents. Some goals of the Munster Foundation include:

  • To promote, foster, and encourage community spirit and pride.
  • To facilitate cooperation between public and private enterprises for the benefit of the Munster community.
  • To promote and assist (self-supporting) projects and activities which enhance the quality of our community through private funding.
  • To manage and expand the funding for the Munster Foundation to allow the Foundation to carry out more projects in the future.

Currently, the Foundation is spending $300,000 for the creation of bicycle paths around Munster and is sponsoring the Town of Munster "Buy a Brick" program. The Foundation also sponsors or co-sponsors several of Munster's annual events, including the Munster Blues and Jazz Festival, the annual 4th of July Celebration, and the Olde Munster Days Festival. These are just some of the many projects in which the Munster Civic Foundation participates. Every Munster Foundation project is carried out without any tax dollars being spent.

The Munster Civic Foundation needs the support of our community. All donations made to the Foundation are tax-deductible. We also look for volunteers to help with projects and activities.
