Field of Interest Funds
You can target your gift to address needs in an important
area of community life. Arts. Cancer. Aging. At-risk youth.
You identify your personal interest area when making your
gift. Our board awards grants to community agencies and programs that are making a difference in the area you select.
You can direct your gift to a specific agency or purpose.
Help provide ongoing funding for the Mackinac Island Medical
Center, Mackinac State Historic Parks, the Mackinac Island Public Library,
your church, or virtually any non-profit charitable organization.
You identify the recipient you wish to benefit through your
gift; our staff manages the annual distribution of funds.
You can have ongoing involvement in the use of your gift.
You work with our professional grant-making staff, identifying
ways to use dollars from your advised fund to address the
community needs you care about most. Your recommendations are submitted to our local board of trustees
for approval; we then manage distribution of your grant dollars.
Please contact us and we can help you meet your goals in establishing a new fund at the Mackinac Island Community Foundation.
