New Funds           

There are two new funds at the Branch County Community Foundation!

The Kelli Loveberry Fund was recently created in memory of Kelli Loveberry. Kelli was a very talented artist and worked as a graphic designer 2nd Story Marketing. The Fund will be used to provide opportunities for the youth in Quincy, Michigan area to participate in visual arts and graphics design programming or related programs/purposes.

The Union City Senior Project Fund was created in partnership with the Village of Union City and the Senior Center Committee to bring a Senior Center to the Village of Union City! This project will be funded solely by donations with assistance from the Community Foundation. This project will bring a much needed facility to the Village with multiple intended uses for Union City and the surrounding areas.
