I M P A C T of 2020 Grants!
Around $300,000 annually is awarded to non-profit organizations that serve Allegan County. Legacy grants provide much needed funds for food pantries, hospice care, the care and treatment of children who have endured abuse, protection and shelter for women who have been abused, an introduction to the arts for hundreds of children annually, creative and powerful programs that heal troubled youth, stewardship of natural assets, and so much more. Hundreds of donors who make gifts to the ACCF each year do so knowing their gift is pooled with others’ gifts to leverage the greatest impact.
