Hillsdale’s commercial district needs strong local support to thrive. Hillsdale Community Foundation is committed to working with the entire community to address five program elements: design, business development, organization, promotion and sustainability. We consider building partnerships with our residents, property owners, business owners and customers extremely vital to the success of our program. In addition, we look forward to partnering with various community-oriented special interest groups to help us get our message out. Explore ways to get involved by clicking on the Volunteer and Donation sections below.
Hillsdale Community Foundation, a Main Street initiative, is purposely a local volunteer-run organization, with over 60 active volunteers and two part time staff members to support them. With five committees, we are always eager to welcome new helping hands!

We now have two ways you can donate to help the revitalization effort of Hillsdale:
- Donate money by clicking here
- NEW!!! Donate stocks or bonds. While selling stocks or bonds yourself will result in paying taxes on any profit made, if you donate the stock or bond to Hillsdale Main Street, a 501(c)3, and we sell the stock/bond, we receive the full worth of the gift without having to pay taxes. If interested, please see the HCF-DTC-Instructions
With your help, Hillsdale Community Foundation is working hard to bring more resources, focused on strengthening our commercial district, into our community. Your gift will help us continue to sustain these programs and continue to grow Hillsdale.
