For Nonprofits

The Community Foundation believes the future of this region rests on developing children into fully capable adults. That is why we have invested in support for children and youth for more than 30 years by supporting high-quality programs, organizations, and initiatives.

We have partnered with schools and other organizations throughout southeast Michigan to fund programs and initiatives that have been proven to improve the lives of children and youth in the areas of leadership, academic performance, school attendance, entrepreneurship and more. We have also supported effective programs in pre-school education that can offset and counteract many of the risks and pressures associated with concentrated poverty, and out-of-school programs that enhance positive youth development and long-term physical, social-emotional, and cognitive health.
