Let's create vibrant, thriving communities in Michigan's Capital Region.

We do that by serving donors to meet their personal charitable goals, supporting area nonprofits with grants and coaching, and leading innovative projects that drive community growth.

Leadership Projects

Working to address our region's greatest needs

In April 2020 the Community Foundation committed $1 million to start the COVID-19 Nonprofit Support Fund, which was supplemented by generous gifts from the community totaling over $270,000. These funds have been exhausted and we are no longer accepting applications. The COVID-19 Nonprofit Support Fund provided 73 grants to assist nonprofits with staffing and other critical needs related to the Covid crisis. A list of grants can be found here.
