2019: A Community Foundation Year in Review

December 6th, 2019 Back to Browse Stories

As 2019 winds down, the Community Foundation would like to thank the donors, grantees, and volunteers that helped make a permanent, positive impact on our region this year.


You helped support health initiatives in southeast Michigan, such as:

You helped support arts and culture programs, like:

  • The United Methodist Retirement Community in Chelsea, which continued to offer visual arts, dance, music, and theater classes to residents;
  • The Neutral Zone, which continued to host LGBT youth from southeast Michigan to promote personal growth through artistic expression;
  • Community Living Centers, which enriched the lives of its residents with developmental disabilities through art classes and adventures.

You helped us support the community around us, such as:

You supported education for the future of our region, like:

  • Wash and Learn, a program of the Detroit Public Library, brought library resources to laundromats  in areas where children may not have access to otherwise visit a library branch;
  • The Rex Family Fund for Literacy was able to continue to support literacy programs for the youth of Livingston County;
  • Our scholarship program reached more students this year, making an impact for students looking to make higher education attainable.

This permanent, positive change is a product of donors’ generosity, and we thank all who have worked with the Community Foundation to make a positive impact on the region this year.


If you would like to support these initiatives going forward, please consider making a gift.
