You are a change-maker. You believe in our communities, and you want to make them better. We feel the same way. As your Community Foundation, we spend every day working to improve the lives of all who live in and visit the Straits Area. The Community Needs Fund at the Straits Area Community Foundtion (SACF), 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.
As its name implies, the Community Needs Fund exists to meet the greatest needs of our communities in an impactful way, making it one of the most important funds held at the Straits Area Community Foundation. It allows us the unique opportunity and flexibility to meet the needs of Cheboygan County and Mackinaw City as they change and evolve year after year. As the Community Needs Fund grows through additional donations and investment income, its grants will increase as well.
At SACF, 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 Needs Fund gives us the promise that on the sunniest and rainiest days of the future, there will be funds to make sure the Straits Area is a great place to live, work and play for all of our residents and visitors!
Your donation to the Community Needs Fund, no matter the size, is a gift that will continue to provide funding for our communities forever. Expertly invested with all of our lead foundation's (Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan) charitable funds, and those of its other affiliate foundations, you can make the maximum impact with your charitable dollars here.
