Love Your Hometown

The Allegan County Community Foundation (ACCF) wants to celebrate your hometown again! It’s Year 2!  The ACCF is excited for this county-wide grant program that is open to everyone. We are looking for projects that will enhance, improve or beautify the hometowns of Allegan, Bloomingdale, Fennville, Hamilton, Hopkins, Martin, Otsego, Plainwell, Saugatuck & Wayland
How does Love Your Hometown work?
By yourself or with a team (co-workers, scout troop members, family, sports team, youth groups, classmates, neighbors, etc.) develop a project that would benefit your community. Submit a completed on-line application by December 31, 2019, for review and approval. Encourage everyone you know to vote for your idea!  Voting starts on February 14 and ends on February 29, 2020. The projects with the most votes in each of the school district area will be awarded up to a $1,000 grant to make it happen – along with the Wild Card winner.
What is the Wild Card? One project will be chosen by the ACCF to receive a Love Your Hometown grant.  This project will be one that did not receive the most votes in their hometown (school district area), but the ACCF feels embodies the Love Your Hometown spirit.  Winners will be announced at Reveal Events in each hometown in March 2020.
