The mission of the Montcalm Panhandle Community Fund is to enhance the quality of life in the four township area that comprises the panhandle of Montcalm County.

The Montcalm Panhandle Community Fund began in December of 1999 with a modest goal of raising $5,000 to get the fund started. Local fund leaders continue to build the fund so regular annual grants can continue to be awarded to the community.

The Panhandle Community Fund is working diligently to strengthen and expand its base of leadership and of donors in the four-township area in which it serves – Reynolds, Pierson, Winfield and Maple Valley.
