|Michigan community foundations
are unique in our ability to make an
impact in so many diverse areas of community need. Our
donors make gifts that allow us to continue to improve
our communities... today and tomorrow.
We gather information and track the many local
agencies and programs working to enhance our
communities. Based on this information, we make grants
and direct resources to the most appropriate areas. We
stay alert to emerging issues and foster giving and
volunteerism in our community.
We have the flexibility to:
- Support high-impact opportunities... those that
will make the greatest difference in our communities
- Serve as a catalyst for bringing organizations
into existence as new needs arise.
- Re-direct funds as appropriate if and when our
communities' needs change (or when local non-profit
organizations cease to exist)
We work to support, build, enrich, protect, safeguard
and serve our communities through arts, development,
education, environment, health and human services. We
can help your gifts make the greatest impact in your
community. Call your local community foundation to get
connected with the causes that matter to you.
