Pontiac, a city of approximately 60,000 residents, is home to a significant network of leaders, nonprofits, business owners and residents who have long been working to enact positive social and economic change. Building on its rich history as a manufacturing center, its vibrant historic downtown and residential neighborhoods, and the presence of major employers and nearby educational institutions, Pontiac is poised to strengthen its legacy as a great place to live and as a vital city to Southeast Michigan’s culture and economy.
In recognition of this, a cohort of funders began working together to better understand community needs, assess capacity in the nonprofit landscape, and identify opportunities for collaborative funding.
Initial funders for the Pontiac Funders Collaborative:
- Ballmer Group
- Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan
- Flagstar Bank Foundation
- General Motors
- New Economy Initiative
- The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation
- Tauber Family Foundation
- The William Davidson Foundation
