Heber Springs Future Fund

What is a Future Fund?
A Future Fund is a way for young professionals to give back to their communities. It doesn’t take great wealth, and it doesn’t require a huge time commitment. Simply put, you and your peers contribute to a special charitable fund at Cleburne County Community Foundation, and together, you come to a decision about which local charities you want to support with your pooled dollars.

When you join the Future Fund, you get to meet other young professionals who share your interests, learn about needs in our community and take an active role in finding solutions. And because a portion of your contribution is invested in a permanent endowment, the money you donate now will continue to grow and benefit our community when your children and grandchildren are in their 20s and 30s.

Join or Renew Your Membership
If you’re between the ages of 25 and 55 and care about the future of Heber Springs, Heber Springs Future Fund is for you! Anyone can join, and your contribution to the HSFF counts as your membership dues for the calendar year.

Dues:  $100 per voting member

Help us grow our endowment. An additional $500 contribution will place you in our Founder’s Circle and help HSFF live forever.
