A Letter from Our Leaders

Dear Friends, 

Once again, as we take time to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments in our Annual Report, we are overwhelmed with gratitude to all of you who have played a part in the success of the Community Foundation. This year, we are looking back not only at the past year, but at the past 25 years. We are celebrating that milestone and the many milestones that led us here. Most of all we are celebrating you and all that you have done.

We thank you, our donors, for your continuous support from 1992 through today. We thank you, our more than 200 nonprofit partners, for impacting our county in so many positive ways. We thank you, our board members and volunteers, who have generously given of your time and resources to set the Community Foundation on the path of growth and excellence. All of you have changed Charlevoix County for the better.

There is so much to celebrate!

With gratitude,


Chip Hansen                                 Bill Aten
