Our Hill City community is a special place with hard-working families who support each other.  We value the special beauty of our lakes, rivers and forests, and many in our area make their living from them.  This is "home" for us.


We now have an opportunity to make our community even better!  With the support of the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation, gifts to the Hill City Area Community Fund (up to $200,000) are matched 1:1 to support our future needs. Your donation will be doubled! We have three years to reach our total of $400,000.00.


The interest earned from the investment of the Hill City Area Community Fund will be available to improve all communities throughout the Hill City Area.  The Hill City Area Community Fund Advisory Committee, made up of local people, will determine how to allocate grant money.


Every donation is important because every dollar is matched no matter what a person can give.  All community supporters will be recognized for their contributions over the three-year match. 


Our Hill City Area Community Fund Advisory Committee members are intent on reaching the goal. We hope you will consider a gift to support YOUR Hill City Area Community Fund.  Our children and their grandchildren will benefit from your generosity for years to come.


We are happy to answer your questions about the benefits of a community endowment.

Thank you for your gift to our Community!
