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.
