As your Community Foundation, we spend every day working to improve the lives of all who live in and visit northeast Michigan. The Community Impact Fund at the Community Foundation for Northeast michigan (CFNEM), built from donations from hundreds of people who care about our communities, allows your gift to do the most good, sustaining and building a vibrant region. Collage of people - award winners, arts, produce.
As its name implies, the Community Impact Fund is one of the most impactful, and therefore important funds held at the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan. It allows us the unique opportunity and flexibility to meet the needs of our communities (Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle Counties) as they change and evolve year after year. Over $115,000 is awarded annually from this fund through our Community Impact grant program. As the Community Impact Fund grows through additional donations and investment income, its grants will increase as well.
At CFNEM, we believe whole-heartedly in the power of endowment as the best way to provide much needed funding in support of our communities for the needs of today, tomorrow and for generations to come. Years from now, this fund will be supporting needs in our communities we can't even imagine today. Though there's no crystal ball to tell us what those needs will be, the Community Impact Fund gives us the promise that on the sunniest and rainiest days of the future, there will be funds to make sure northeast Michigan is a great place to live, work and play for all of our residents and visitors!
Your donation to the Community Impact Fund, no matter the size, is a gift that will continue to provide funding for our communities forever. Expertly invested with all of CFNEM's charitable funds, you can make the maximum impact with your charitable dollars here. DONATE>
