Thank you for supporting Give Local Bay 2019!

Thanks for helping raise more than $78,000 for our nonprofit community!

With your help, our fifth annual day of giving raised more than $78,000 for local Bay and Arenac county nonprofit endowment funds. More than $50,000 was raised by the community and matched with $27,750 from the Bay Area Community Foundation in incentive funds and prizes. These dollars help build long-term growth for some of our great community assets.

An addition, $266 was contributed to the overall incentive funds from Connan’s Irish Hub. They partnered with us for this event and donated $1 for every craft beer purchased during our celebration.

The two funds who raised the most are Ye Olde Courthouse/Arenac County Historical Society in Omer and Friends of the Arenac Heritage Route Authority.

Bay County Habitat for Humanity and Bay City Rowing Club won the LiUNA-Local 1098 sponsor prizes by having the most creative Facebook posts with the most shares in the evening. Other prizes were awarded throughout the day, and final leaderboards can be viewed at The Bay Area Community Foundation would like to thank LiUNA—Local 1098 for their presenting sponsorship; Fifth Third Bank, Huntington Bank, McLaren Bay Region, and Warner Norcross + Judd for their community sponsorship; and the community for their incredible support throughout the day.
