2020 Great Give
The Hillsdale County Community Foundation is proud to once again host the 2020 Great Give aimed at encouraging all of Hillsdale County to give to local non-profits on one specific date – December 1st!
December 1st is Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Giving Tuesday, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
The HCCF is encouraging Hillsdale County residents to celebrate the spirit of philanthropy by donating to our local nonprofits. Funds from a bonus pool will be distributed and awarded by the HCCF to participating agencies in several ways during the Great Give.
Please plan now to support your local non-profit. Online gifts are encouraged using the HCCF donate page. There will be drive through and drop off options for donors at this years location, the former Cottage Inn building, 182 W. Carleton Rd.
COVID-19 Response & Grant Application
Today, as our community faces the COVID-19 crisis, we have established the Hillsdale County Emergency Relief Fund to address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable community members. With this fund, HCCF will be able to make emergency grants to local organizations responding to the emergent needs in Hillsdale County.

Currently, only 501(c)3 non-profit organizations can apply for this funding. Grants may be used to provide flexible dollars to local organizations that are helping our community’s most vulnerable residents with increased or unexpected needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic that, if unmet, could result in a crisis situation for those individuals and their families.

- Provides GRANT OPPORTUNITIES to meet the needs of our families, elderly, and youth populations.
