The Battle Creek Community Foundation is excited to open our office for business beginning Monday, June 22, 2020. Our office hours are Mon-Fri 8:30am to 5:00pm. During our recent closure we have cleaned, sanitized and added a new air filtration system throughout the building as well as installed Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) stations in various locations containing sanitized wipes and hand sanitizer. We will continue to follow the recommended state and CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) disease.
Currently our office is closed to outside guests. We will be meeting with the community by appointment only. Please call 269-962-2181 for more information.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience.
The Homer Area Community Foundation (HACF) was founded as an affiliate of the Battle Creek Community Foundation in 1994 and was created to serve as a catalyst to develop and administer permanent resources to address the needs of the Homer Area.
The Homer Area Community Foundation welcomes and encourages the application of innovative and creative grant proposals that will promote the educational, recreational, environmental and cultural development of the Homer area. Grants will be awarded by the Homer Area Community Foundation from the Unrestricted Fund, the Bessie Edwards Education Fund, and the Youth Fund. Grant applications will be reviewed by the Foundation Grant Review Committee and the members of the Homer Youth Advisory Committee. Grants, which show promise of helping a broad segment of citizens of the Homer area or help a traditional undeserved portion of the population, will be looked upon favorable by the grant review committee. Grants from the Homer Area Community Foundation support the organizations and programs in our community that serve the needs of people in such areas as health, education, human services, arts and culture, youth, and community development.
General grants (grant requests over $300.00) typically take 2 months for a decision. Mini grants ($300.00 or less) can be submitted at any time and typically take 1 month for a decision. To apply for a grant you will need: a program/project budget in a Homer Grant Budget Form and a valid tax identification number. These items will be submitted as electronic attachments.
