Agent Charitable Fund raises over $70k to feed Michigan families

The Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan Agent Charitable Fund (ACF) held their fourth annual Statewide Fundraiser on June 6 and raised over $70,000 to feed hungry neighbors across the state.

The 2024 event was powered by Restoration 1, hosted at PohlCat Golf Course in Mount Pleasant, and included a sold-out golf scramble, banquet, and live and silent auction.

“All funds raised at our Statewide Fundraiser will support our hunger-relief efforts across the state and help us feed kids, families and neighbors in need,” said ACF Statewide Fundraiser Committee Co-Chair Kelly Obenauf.

The ACF partners with Farm Bureau agents and counties to direct 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 grants and donation matches are reviewed by a committee of ACF donors every other month — the next deadline is Friday, Aug. 2.

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.
