In 2009, C3F worked with the Frey Foundation to create the Urgent Needs Fund in order to meet growing needs. Since then, other donors have supported the Fund, allowing for grants to provide human services organizations with resources to help families and individuals make ends meet. Urgent Needs Fund grants have helped to stock the shelves of food pantries, provided for home heating and electricity, and purchased shoes and boots for children in need.
Basic needs like food, clothing, heat, and housing should be available to everyone in Charlevoix County. Providing support for friends and neighbors in need has always been a priority for the Community Foundation.
The Charlevoix County Community Foundation is a charitable organization that's dedicated to improving and enriching life for all who live in our area. Founded by a group of local citizens in 1992 with support from the Frey Foundation, the Council of Michigan Foundations, the Malpass Foundation, EJ (formerly East Jordan Iron Works), and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the organization has grown to be a valuable resource for our county.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
