Drost Fund for the Community

Drost serves northern Michigan with a wide variety of landscaping services that include design, construction, maintenance, tree services, irrigation, and lighting.  A locally owned and operated business since 1991, the Drost family and the company’s employees live, work, and play in the areas they serve.  The business sponsors hands-on support for community projects, such as home landscapes for Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity and flower bed installation with area Garden Clubs to name just a few.  Drost encourages employees to share their time and talents with the community, as well.


In addition to giving to the community through landscape installation, Drost has established the Drost Fund for the Community to give back now and in the future.  “We aim to be leaders in our field,” says Dale Drier, general manager, “and when we considered how to have a positive impact in Charlevoix County, it made sense to look to the Community Foundation as the leader in their field.”  The Drost Fund for the Community will boost grant-making alongside the Community Fund, forever.  These permanent, powerful charitable resources will meet needs and advance opportunities in Charlevoix County, even as those needs and opportunities change over time.   The Community Foundation is proud to partner with Drost to make a difference right here, close to home.
