Giving to the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan is easy.

We can accept one-time gifts or gifts over the course of several years. We accept a wide variety of gifts, including:

  • Cash, by check or online donation
  • Securities traded on major exchanges
  • Closely held business interests
  • Interests in limited liability companies
  • Patent interests and other qualified intellectual properties
  • Mutual fund shares
  • Fully paid life insurance policies
  • Retirement plan assets
  • Real estate

Giving through the Community Foundation allows you to support what is most important to you.

You may support the endowment of a particular nonprofit organization or give to a particular area of philanthropic interest. Or, you may choose to support the Community Foundation’s unrestricted endowment fund, which gives us the flexibility to address the emerging needs and unforeseen opportunities that arise in our region over time, such as helping resolve Detroit’s bankruptcy.
