Cynthiana Harrison County Chamber Foundation
The Cynthiana Harrison County Chamber Foundation was founded in March of 2019 to promote, support and encourage community outreach and development. The foundation is a 501c3 branch of the Cynthiana Harrison County Chamber of Commerce, with a separate board of directors.
In 2019, the board of directors created a five year strategic plan for the foundation. The first part of the plan was to aid in the development of a splash pad at Flat Run Veterans Park here in Cynthiana. The foundation has raised $110,000 towards the project to date and in addition to the $100,000 City of Cynthiana commitment and the $87,500 matching grant through Bluegrass Ad, for a total of $297,968. The foundation has also applied for several grants to assist in the development. The current estimate of the splash pad is between $500-$750,000. The foundation has been working closely with city and county officials to hopefully develop the splash pad by spring of 2023. The goal is to provide a free, community splash pad at Flat Run Veteran’s Park that will benefit Cynthiana and Harrison County for years to come.
