New Office Space
Our address hasn’t changed, but our offices are now upstairs with a separate entrance next to Jeannie’s Diner.  We are so very grateful to Southern Michigan Bank & Trust for their continuous support through gifts, business solutions, and providing office space for over 25 years. This new office space will help the Community Foundation continue to serve the people in Branch County and Colon and with new visibility, increase the number of people who learn how BCCF connects people who care with causes that matter – For Good. For Ever.
Charitable IRA Rollovers - Any Time of Year

Tax benefits allow qualified IRA owners to experience the joy of giving more during their lifetimes. You can give more for less. Americans over age 701/2 don’t pay federal income tax on individual retirement account (IRA) funds given to charity, up to $100,000 per person. So your retirement funds can go farther than ever before.
 

You can make a difference now and in the future, with your gift to the
 
Forever Fund, designated fund, or other fund within the Community Foundation. 

 

Giving is one of life’s pleasures; we can help you enjoy it today.  Call or text 517-278-4517 or email us for more information.
