The Berrien Community Foundation was established in 1952 by William Vawter and a group of concerned business people, much like the rest of the community foundation movement that started in the Midwest.

The Foundation is an innovative means by which concerned citizens can put charitable dollars to work for the benefit of Berrien County residents.

It is a union of numerous gifts, bequests, and other contributions that form endowments and other funds. The spendable portion of the Foundation's endowments are used to make grants to agencies and institutions serving the residents of Berrien County.

BCF holds funds for our local non-profit agencies, donor advised funds, and Field of Interest funds, along with our fund to support general grantmaking in Berrien County.
