To us, southeast Michigan is more than a geographic region — it’s the place we call home and that’s what drives both our grantmaking and agency endowment programs.
Over the years, the Community Foundation has helped to create and fund numerous projects that improve the lives of those who live here. Our interest areas span from arts and culture, to the environment, to health and human services.
We seek to make strategic investments in the community, and look to partner with nonprofit organizations to help create enduring solutions to complex problems. Effecting change requires both passion and measured thought, and we work hard to find proposals that encompass both.
As we do our grantmaking, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan is also committed to honoring the intentions of our many donors and creating solutions that make everlasting positive impacts.
And above all else, we are keenly interested in what inspires you. We look forward to hearing your ideas for transforming our vision for a healthy and prosperous region into reality
