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. Call your local community foundation to get connected with the causes that matter to you.
