The Straits Area Community Foundation (SACF) Board of Directors is pleased to share the 2016 Annual Report with you. There is so much to celebrate including our many grants, scholarships and our Youth Advisory Council, and of course, recognition of the many donors whose vision and generosity make all of this possible. Though it hardly seems enough, we give our sincerest gratitude for their support.
In 2016, SACF gained a new charitable fund: the Raymond Plaunt Memorial Maritime Scholarship Fund. This addition brings the number of charitable funds held at the Community Foundation to 47. Our assets increased from $1.94 million to $2.13 million, and we received over $178,000 in contributions during the year.
We invite you to enjoy this annual report, and to spend a little time on our website as well, learning more about how your donations are making a difference right here in Cheboygan County and Mackinaw City.

A new scholarship fund through the Straits Area Community Foundation (SACF) will provide an educational opportunity for students pursuing an education and career in the maritime field.
The Raymond Plaunt Maritime Memorial Scholarship, reflecting a growing trend among new scholarship funds being established at the Community Foundation, is an award open not only to graduating seniors, but also to non-traditional students and those who have served in the military.
