The Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) recently received a contribution to the COVID-19 Response Fund from Horizon Bank. Horizon Bank has pledged a total of $250,000 allocated across several not-for-profit groups who are working to assist affected individuals in the communities they serve in the States of Indiana and Michigan.
“Midland Area Community Foundation has been a pillar of our community for almost 50 years, so it came as no surprise when they rapidly put together a coalition of philanthropy, government, educational and business partners to provide a collective response to COVID-19 in Midland County,” stated Russ Mathews, Horizon Bank Market President of Great Lakes Bay Area. “Horizon Bank is proud to partner with the MACF, whose mission and vision align closely with our core values. It is our duty to invest in our community and assist our neighbors in their immediate and future needs.”
Horizon Bank joins Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union as the second local banking institution to contribute to MACF’s COVID-19 response efforts.
“Midland Area Community Foundation is pleased and humbled by Horizon Bank’s donation of $10,000 towards our COVID-19 Response Fund,” said Sharon Mortensen, President & CEO of the Midland Area Community Foundation. “The fund is providing relief right now to nonprofit agencies who are providing services for vulnerable populations most impacted by the pandemic, and individuals whose livelihood has been impacted.”
