With all that is happening in our world, country, state and communities, changes are happening rapidly. Below you will find Foundation updates and program changes. Please visit www.alleganfoundation.org for additional information.
Like many, the Foundation is canceling events, holding virtual meetings when possible and changing the way we are doing business.

Our offices are currently closed. You can reach our staff via their email.
We will reply as soon as we are able.

The Non-Profit Spotlight publication date has been pushed back one week.
It will publish on April 16, 2020 . We wanted to give our non-profits the chance to update their information amid the many cancellations of events and fundraisers. We have had to cancel our own Grant Awards event in April.
We also wanted to ensure that we shared accurate and informative
Allegan County COVID 19 information in the publication.

The July Spotlight publication is scheduled to publish July 9, 2020.

The ACCF will be extending the article submission deadline to May 18th, 2020 - this is an extra month and a half so as to give non-profits some extra time amid all that is going on.

COVID-19 is causing our non-profits to lose revenues while many are seeing a demand for increased services. Please support their work to ensure they can continue to serve our community.
With the abrupt closing of our school systems in the county we have extended some scholarship deadlines to April 3, 2020.
(Only for those who were in our system by March 13, 2020)

These include food pantries, Medicaid, nutrition assistance, highway construction and planning,Title I and Special Education Grants, Foster Care and Child Care Grants,
K-12 education, Section 8 Vouchers, and Head Start/Early Start.
