Agent Charitable Fund Raises Over $65,000 to Feed Michigan Families

The Agent Charitable Fund held their third annual Statewide Fundraiser on Thursday, May 18, and 180 supporters raised over $65,000 to feed hungry neighbors across the state. The Statewide Fundraiser was held in Mount Pleasant and consisted of a golf scramble at Pohlcat and a strolling dinner and live auction at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.

“All funds raised during our golf outing, our strolling dinner and our live and silent auctions will support our mission of ending hunger in Michigan,” says ACF Statewide Fundraiser Committee co-chair, Ryan Hendrickson. “Raised dollars will support our grant programs to schools and nonprofit organizations, provide meals across the state and fund more refrigerated trailers to hit the road and deliver food all around Michigan.”

The ACF partners with agents and counties to facilitate hunger-relief grants and donation matches across the state. Available grant and donation match opportunities can be viewed on the Agent Charitable Fund website. Applications for funding are reviewed by a committee of ACF donors every other month – the next deadlines are Friday, June 2 and Friday, August 4.

The ACF, whose mission is to end hunger in Michigan, is a donor-designated fund administered through the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture. The Michigan Foundation for Agriculture, a 501(c)(3) governed by Michigan Farm Bureau’s board of directors, positively contributes to the future of Michigan agriculture through leadership and educational programming. Through grant programs like Feeding the Future, Farm Bureau agents, clients and partners provide food and educational programs to Michigan residents struggling with hunger and aid the more than 3,000 hunger-relief agencies throughout the state.
