Who we are and how we work
It’s about community
Since 1987, our Community Foundation has been growing a pool of philanthropic resources supported by thousands of donors and benefiting scores of charitable organizations dedicated to improving life in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties.
A 501(c) (3) public charity, we manage assets in excess of $83 million and oversee more than 400 funds. And we have disbursed more than $40 million in grants.

And we need you
When you partner with our Community Foundation, you are joining a family of donors united in their desire to strengthen our community.
Together we feed hungry families, fund nature centers, support refugee youth in their pursuit of a GED, and protect Lansing’s waterways, parks and trails. And much more.
