There are so many ways to spread love on Valentine’s Day, but we encourage you to consider giving back to your local organizations that care
At our core, the Community Foundation is about connection. We bring together passionate, generous people who want to build strong, prosperous communities through charitable investment. Our vision for Branch County is one of a successful, collaborative, and welcoming community where residents feel a sense of belonging and pride and everyone has opportunities to grow and thrive.
In our latest annual report, we share some of the ways we’ve invested in our communities over the last fiscal year and the impact of those investments. We hope you find inspiration in these stories of needs met, people helped, organizations supported, and lives changed.
The Community Good Grant Program is fueled by The Forever Fund, our one unrestricted fund. Generous people like you have built The Forever Fund over generations, giving to secure a better future for everyone in Branch County and Colon.
Please consider making a gift to The Forever Fund today.
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.”
