As a program of the Hendricks County Community Foundation, H3O is designed to give youth in Hendricks County an inside view of grantmaking. Youth are tasked with fundraising, grant writing and reading, marketing, and volunteer service. The council is made up of middle and high school students from all six Hendricks County high schools.

The foundation manages an $8 million collection of funds that were created by individuals, families, businesses, and organizations for charitable purposes.
