BECOME A MEMBER
What does it take to become a member of the Midland Area Community Foundation? Any size donation will do - large or small. We make it easy for a reason: we want anyone in Midland to have the chance to combine their gift with others to make an impact in their community.
Our goal for 2013 was to gain 400 new members, and with your help we accomplished that and then some! Along with the knowledge that your gift will be kept in Midland, improving the vibrancy of our community, you'll also receive periodic updates on the impact of your gifts, receive voting privileges at our annual meeting, and get invited to special community foundation events and projects throughout the year.
Giving is easy. Just head to our online donation form and fill out the requested information. We look forward to welcoming you as a member.
Reasons to Give
Since 1973, area residents have been working with the Midland Area Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization serving thousands of people who share a common concern to improve the quality of life in Midland and Gladwin Counties. Through our Clare County Community Foundation affiliate, we are helping in Clare County as well.
Our donors make gifts that allow us to continue to improve our communities... today and tomorrow.
We gather information and track the many local agencies and programs working to enhance our communities. Based on this information, we make grants and direct resources to the most appropriate areas. We stay alert to emerging issues and foster giving and volunteerism in our community.
We have the flexibility to:
- Support high-impact opportunities... those that will make the greatest difference in our communities
- Serve as a catalyst for bringing organizations into existence as new needs arise
- Re-direct funds as appropriate if and when our communities' needs change (or when local non-profit organizations cease to exist)
We work to support, build, enrich, protect, safeguard and serve our communities through arts, development, education, environment, health and human services. We can help your gifts make the greatest impact in your community. Contact us today to get connected with the causes that matter to you.
