Sharing Stories of Creative Organizations We are Proud to Support

Like any good investor, the Community Foundation is always looking for innovative ideas in our sector. We know that more than three-quarters of Michigan nonprofits reported serving more people with fewer resources, so they have to be creative and smart about how they do their work.

Part of our job involves helping nonprofits become stronger and more sustainable so that they can continue to contribute to a good quality of life in our region.

Our nonprofit partners are continually thinking about their business models, about how they deliver services, raise funds and communicate with the public — all the things that help them fulfill their missions and serve our communities.

This is the reality for all nonprofits, whether they work in the arts, health and human services, the environment, economic development or any of the other areas of community need that are supported by the Community Foundation.

Fortunately, southeast Michigan is full of excellent organizations whose committed leadership, staff and volunteers are meeting this challenge every day.

In this issue of the Report, we share stories of creative organizations we are proud to support. They are just a few of the many resourceful and effective nonprofits that do remarkable things in our community.

We continue to be inspired by the many well-managed organizations that are confronting the issues and taking the action necessary to move our region forward.

As always, we welcome your suggestions and feedback about how we can best serve the causes that matter to you.
