We're commissioning a sculpture for this roundabout. We've got four finalists, and now we want to know what you think of them.


We work with donors of all giving abilities to connect their philanthropic passions to areas of need in our region. We manage over 400 named funds, from donor-advised funds for donors who want a say in how their money is used, field of interest funds to support specific causes like the environment or the arts, to undesignated funds that benefit any need in the community at any given time. Whether you have $10 or $10,000, we can help you realize your charitable goals.


As a community leader, our Community Foundation has made a commitment to work more proactively, not just reactively, to better address our region's greatest needs. Our current focus is on placemaking projects to make our region vibrant. In 2017, we launched our inaugural Penny for Your Thoughts contest to gather ideas from the community to strengthen the Michigan Avenue corridor.


We help local nonprofits, big and small, get stronger. We support nonprofits through our Impact Grant and Mini-Grant review process, where a volunteer committee meets to review proposals for programs throughout the region. And we have a Capacity Building Grant program to further support nonprofits and help them grow stronger. This includes grant awards, strengthened relationships between nonprofits and the Foundation, fundraising coaching, and much more.

You love this community. We do, too.

Together, we are making an impact.

Our 2018 Impact Report highlights progress on our riverfront development, new initiatives we're taking to make the region more vibrant and how we partner with nonprofits and donors to improve the quality of life in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties.

See for yourself!
