Charlevoix Enrichment Fund Celebrates Milestone

The Community Foundation is made up of many funds that were established to have different kinds of positive impact throughout Charlevoix County.  The Charlevoix Enrichment Fund was created by – and continues to receive support from – individuals, couples, families, and businesses that love the Charlevoix community.  This Fund makes grants twice each year for the benefit of residents and visitors and recently passed $150,000 in total grants.

The Charlevoix Enrichment Fund has supported the after-school program for Charlevoix Elementary School students, locker room renovation and expansion at the Charlevoix Area Community Pool, outdoor seating and tables at Charlevoix Circle of Arts, and much more in the last 21 years.  Organizations like the Charlevoix Historical Society, Munson Healthcare Charlevoix Hospital, and the City of Charlevoix have become strong partners in improving quality of life thanks to grants provided by the Charlevoix Enrichment Fund.

As with all of the funds at the Community Foundation – whether focused on a particular area or flexibly applied as needs and opportunities change – we couldn’t do it without the generous support of donors who care for this special place.  The power of endowment means that each gift is blended with gifts of others and invested to grow and grant for generations to come, so the Charlevoix Enrichment Fund will continue to build momentum!
