It is such a pleasure to team with the exceptional staff at the Community Foundation when I’m developing and implementing my clients’ charitable goals. The Foundation is an invaluable — and, I think, underutilized — resource in mid-Michigan. They make it easy for my clients to go from being well-intentioned, check-writing supporters of causes they care about to being philanthropists for our community.”

Recommending charity without recommending a charity

You may be reluctant to recommend a specific charity to your clients. We understand. But we are not that. The Community Foundation manages more than 460 funds and has awarded more than $40 million in grants to hundreds of nonprofits working in diverse fields.
