Education & Youth

  • Carolyn Wierda has been a key player in creating the Bay Commitment Scholarship program. When she retired from the Bay City Public Schools as a superintendent in 2009, the community honored her with financial gifts to support Bay Commitment far into the future.

  • The new climbing wall at Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum allows Bay County children with disabilities to work with their therapists in a safe and fun environment.

  • If you had met brother and sister Henry and Irene Linkowski, you would have quickly learned of their strong faith, great pride in their Polish heritage, love of travel, and generous hearts. But because of their unassuming nature, you might not have realized just how generous they were.

  • A Bay City couple ensured that their love for the University of Michigan would carry on past their lifetimes.

  • During the 2018 fall semiannual grant season, Bay Area Community Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant the CAN Council of the Great Lakes Bay Region to throw a holiday party for the kids they service. This grant from the Elizabeth J. Husband Fund will provide new clothing, toys, and a nice meal for children who are in and out of their homes during the holiday season.

  • BACF’s Community Initiative and Youth Advisory Funds awarded grants to open a writing center available for free to the public in the Jack & Alice Wirt Public Library in Downtown Bay City.

  • Grants from the Community Initiative Fund and Youth Advisory Committee allowed new student artwork under the Veteran's Memorial Bridge.

  • The Great Lakes Bay College and Career Resource Center  helped Forest Bradley to prepare for and take his GED test so that he could be a firefighter.

  • Established with memorial contributions when Michael Dwan passed away in 2007, his family created the Dwan Family Donor Advised Fund to honor his commitment to the community. Since that time, the family has directed charitable disbursements to a variety of projects.

  • Join us for the annual MLK Regional Celebration as we honor our Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Scholarship recipients and hear from Keynote Speaker Valerie Jarrett.
