The Hillsdale Community Foundation, a volunteer-lead effort, is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is the revitalization of the Hillsdale Town Center and the bettering the neighborhood as a whole. The premise for the Foundation is the belief that the Hillsdale business district is the “living room” of the community, and the best way to revitalize a community is to start with the living room first. This comprehensive approach focuses on five primary areas:
Design – Improving the physical appearance and use of space inside the district.
Business Development – Assisting current business thrive and grow, recruiting new, appropriate businesses to the district, and staying abreast of current market data.
Promotion – Promoting the business district and the businesses within.
Sustainability – Decreasing the carbon footprint of the Hillsdale Town Center.
Organization – Management of the organization, including volunteer management, fundraising, and communications.
A volunteer committee has been created for each of these five points. To find out more about each committee, click here. In addition to the five standing committees, Hillsdale Community Foundation has an 11-15 member Board of Directors. For more information about the Board, click here.
