Community foundation affiliate funds serve the needs of their communities while partnering with GACF for investment, administrative, and operational support. Local advisory boards guide the philanthropic work of the affiliate funds.  We are proud to currently support two geographic affiliate funds – the Lakeview Area Community Fund (LACF) and the Montcalm Panhandle Community Fund (MPCF).

If you are interested in creating a fund that would directly benefit your area or community within Montcalm County, please contact Alison Barberi, GACF President and CEO at 616-754-2640 or by email.
