Stories from the Midland Area Community Foundation

Thank you for a great Give Local Midland 2021

May 17th, 2021

Thank you for giving local, Midland! We’re excited to report that the Midland Area Community Foundation’s 24-hour giving day, Give Local Midland, held May 4, brought in close to $450,000 through donations, a matching pool, and prizes. Over its eight-year history, Give Local Midland has brought a cumulative total of over 2.2 million dollars to local nonprofits!

Thank you for giving and sharing about this important 24-hour event that happens once a year. Give Local provides nonprofits one day each year to focus their efforts on building long-term sustainability through their endowment fund at the Community Foundation. Your support of nonprofit endowment funds helps enrich and improve the quality of life and result in long-term community transformation.

Your Community Foundation believes in the power of collective giving and handles all of the administrative details and fees associated with the giving day, meaning donors’ dollars go even farther. Nonprofit endowment funds received gifts ranging from $5-$12,000, reminding us that everyone can be a philanthropist.

I welcome and encourage anyone that wants to learn more about your local Community Foundation to reach out to me directly. On behalf of the 72 endowed funds that participated in this year’s Give Local Midland, thank you for giving where you live!
