What is a Community Foundation?

Community Foundations are the area's leaders in philanthropy. We look to the long-term growth in Bay and Arenac counties to ensure there are always funds available to respond to pressing needs and take initiative for new opportunities.

For more than 25 years, we have been supporting the philanthropic goals of our donors and the work of our local nonprofits. We don't know what future needs and opportunities will drive the future. But one thing is for sure: because of your generosity, Bay Area Community Foundation will be here!
