Mission

To enrich the quality of life in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan by providing financial support to initiate programs that address the changing needs of our region

Most Meaningful Change

We helped coordinate a multi-organization submission for the National Head Start program. Earlier, many different organizations each applied individually and no local organization received the grant dollars. The process was opened up again and we worked with many of those organizations, hiring a consultant to help draft the latest application. It was submitted for review in December 2013.
