Emily Schafer joined the Midland Area Community Foundation in February of 2014 as the Director of Development. She loves to build relationships through understanding people’s passions. She works with donors, fund holders, volunteers, and community members to help them achieve their philanthropic goals. In addition, Emily works to ensure the message of the Foundation is presented to the communities we serve so everyone knows that they can be a philanthropist by giving their time, talent, or treasure.
Emily’s favorites include meeting new people in the community, spending time with her friends and family, especially, her nephew Gibson. She enjoys spending time outside -particularly biking on the Chippewa Trail and going to Loons games She loves to volunteer in the community and serve her church – Midland E-free. She loves a good hug, holding babies, and making people laugh.
Favorite thing to do in Midland County
