On May 5, nearly 600 Midland County residents took part in the Midland Area Community Foundation’s Give Local Midland crowdfunding campaign, collectively raising over $216,465 for local nonprofits in just 24 hours.
The funds went directly to the endowment funds of the 50 participating nonprofit agencies, helping to ensure their long-term sustainability.
If you logged on to www.givelocalmidland.org on May 5 and made a donation of any amount, the community foundation would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your commitment to giving where you live.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of our local nonprofits. Indeed, they touch all of our lives in one way or another by impacting our youth, arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, community improvement and more.
The community foundation exists because of generous donors and volunteers like you who care about the future of our community. Over 40 years ago, a community endowment fund was established with just a few thousand dollars. Because of this, we are now able to grant over $3.5 million each year.
We strongly believe that giving to local endowment funds is enormously beneficial to the future of Midland County, and we’re glad to see so many community members agree. Again, thank you for your support. You’ve helped to give this community greater vibrancy by enriching and improving the quality of life.
