Boyne City Enrichment Fund
The Community Foundation aims to enhance the quality of life for residents throughout the County, but each individual community within the County has unique needs and opportunities. The Boyne City Enrichment Fund has the flexibility to support organizations, programs, and projects that have a broader scope, such as the Grandvue Medical Care Facility’s greenhouse and Leadership Charlevoix County, but focuses on initiatives and needs in Boyne City.
Boyne City Enrichment Fund grant dollars have supported Habitat for Humanity homes in Boyne City, the Boyne Reads program through the Boyne District Library, and the Irish Heritage Festival. Veteran’s Park playground and pavilion improvements were assisted by the Community Foundation’s Boyne City Enrichment Fund, in addition to upgrades to the Ridge Run Dog Park and the Boyne River walkway. The grants may be more narrow in terms of geography but are wide in variety, from stocking the shelves at the Good Neighbors Food Pantry to supporting the installation of an electronic scoreboard at the Rotary Park little league baseball field.
Because the Boyne City Enrichment Fund is endowed, it will continue to grow and provide grant dollars for these kinds of programs and projects and more, both now and into the future. Contributions to the Boyne City Enrichment Fund join together, resulting in greater impact for this community we love.
