All of the agencies in attendance had the opportunity to connect with their fellow nonprofits while collecting donations to further their missions in helping the community. Hillsdale County Community Foundation would like to sincerely thank everyone who contributed in showing their support and generosity for the amazing community we live in.

The Hillsdale County Community Foundation was established in 1991 “For good. For ever.” As a community grant-making foundation, it provides seed money to organizations and institutions that have identified problems and have designed constructive action programs aimed at solutions. A majority of the Community Foundation’s grant making is focused on the areas of youth, leadership, philanthropy and volunteerism.
