Education & Youth

Education is a cornerstone of our community. Our youth are our future.

Education provides growth and economic prosperity. It opens new worlds for our residents. Thanks to our donors, we grant to schools and nonprofits providing new educational opportunities. We provide free, year-round resources at our College and Career Resource Center. And we award nearly $500,000 annually in scholarships for higher education.

Donors like you help our youth to thrive

Across Michigan, we are striving to achieve a goal of 60% of the population with a degree by the year 2025. In Bay and Arenac Counties, we strive as well to meet this goal. But we also know that degree attainment is only part of the picture. Through donors like you, we are supporting first-generation college students, helping adults return to prepare for and take the GED, and financing innovative education opportunities in our community.
