HCCF presents Hiner Family Fund grant to Quayle Center

Huntington County Community Foundation has presented a Hiner Family Fund grant for $650 to The Dan Quayle Commemorative Foundation, Inc./United States Vice Presidential Museum.

The grant represents the annual distribution from the Hiner Family Fund, administered by the Huntington County Community Foundation. The Hiner Family Fund was established in 1997 by Homer and Marjorie Hiner to support the preservation and promotion of culture in Huntington County.

The Dan Quayle Commemorative Foundation, Inc./USVP Museum will use income produced by the Hiner Family Fund to purchase a material called Frontrunner. The purpose of the project is to enhance its educational programs by improving the surroundings and exhibit area in which they are given.

The educational programs, such as "Indiana's Five" and the "Quayle Quiz," rely on the exhibits themselves to illustrate points within the program. Updating the area will improve the quality of the programs.

The Huntington County Community Foundation serves Huntington County by building and maintaining permanent endowment funds which support charitable endeavors to enhance the quality of life for area residents.
