Society Endowment

Hillsdale County Fair Renovation Fund

The Hillsdale County Agricultural Society has established an endowment fund through the Hillsdale County Community Foundation for the renovation of the Hillsdale County Fairground facilities. In recent years, the Fair Board has addressed the elimination of approximately $50,000 in state funding for premiums, stabling and training, and building and grounds improvements.
 
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Fair Board and volunteers work hard throughout the year to generate funds for off-season events, fair week programming, and the upkeep of the fairground facilities. This endowment fund was established to address the long-term funding for fairground facility improvements. We're proud to say that we’re maintaining and improving the many historic buildings on the fairgrounds. We have several structures that were built in the 1800's, such as the Floral Hall in 1866, the Historical Society Museum (Dwelling House/Office) in 1869, the Grange Hall (Mechanics and Agricultural Hall) in 1870, the Woman’s Congress Building (Music Hall) in 1878, the Education Building (Carriage Hall) in 1880, to name a few.
 
The Hillsdale County Fair will celebrate 172 years in 2022. We ask for your consideration to invest in the future of the Hillsdale County Fairgrounds with a gift of any kind to the Hillsdale County Fair Renovation Fund. Your gifts will not only qualify for a federal tax deduction, but also for a state of Michigan tax credit.
