There are many benefits to contributing to funds managed by the Mackinac Island Community Foundation:
You can address a broad range of local needs: Arts. Aging. At-risk youth. The Environment. These are just a few aspects of community life supported by your Community Foundation. Every year we make grants to local agencies and programs serving our ever-changing population. Think of us as a simple vehicle for addressing a broad range of community needs.
Your donation works forever. And it’s fully tax deductible. When you donate through our endowment funds, your gift principal never gets spent. It’s carefully invested, and the earnings are used to benefit our community through annual grants.
You can create a personal legacy of giving. We offer a variety of giving options — including the ability to set up a special fund named for you, for your family, or in memory of a loved one. If you wish, you can be involved in the distribution of grant dollars generated by your fund. It’s a highly personalized approach to giving.
