Local Farmers Support 4-H and BCCF with Contributions to the Gifts of Grain Fund

The Branch County Community Foundation (BCCF) and the Branch County 4-H Foundation are excited to announce that the Branch County Gifts of Grain fund has received its first grain donations. The first grain donation was made in February 2022 by Austin Hostetler.​

“When I heard I could make a donation to the 4-H Foundation and the Community Foundation by giving grain, I knew it would be a good way to give back to both organizations that do great work in the county I grew up in,” said Austin. “I hope that my donation will help give kids the same opportunities I had while I was in 4-H.”
