Small grants have the potential to make a big impact, and a $275 Northeast Michigan Youth Advisory Council (NEMYAC) grant is a great example of that. This grant to Hillman Community Schools helped to purchase fitness equipment for the K-5th grade physical education classes at the elementary school. Project coordinator Kathleen Kangas said the greatest outcome of the project is watching the students improve their physical fitness levels while having fun, and she hopes the students will continue exercising at home with their families.

For a 48-hour period beginning at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, June 20th, the Community Foundation is hosting a “Red, White and Cruise” giving contest to give those who care about northeast Michigan an opportunity to make an impact in their communities, and the chance to win two tickets on the Lady Michigan’s 4th of July Fireworks Cruise. “For two days, June 20th and June 21st, anybody who makes a gift online to the Community Endowment Fund at the Foundation will have their name entered into a drawing to win the two cruise tickets,” said Patrick Heraghty, CFNEM Executive Director. “We received the tickets through a sponsorship for the Friends of the National Marine Sanctuary’s Maritime Festival, and we thought it would be fun to share the tickets with our community by hosting this giving event.” http://www.cfnem.org/resources/news/community-foundation-announces-red-white-and-cruise-giving-event-june-20-21.html More →
